Jessica Jackson Hutchins | Reason to Be

Situated prominently within the North Plaza at CenturyLink Field, Portland artist Jessica Jackson Hutchins presents new, large-scale outdoor sculpture. Drawing from the design of public rest spots, such as bus stops and park gazebos, the artist integrates panels of bespoke stained glass into the frames of a decommissioned public bus shelter. In a hybrid space invoking public citizenship and personal spirituality, the project continues Hutchins’ interest in the friction between the mundane and transcendent.
