Last month, Ken and I took Ruth to her first art show at Union Pine, a beautiful gallery space here in Portland, Oregon. The show, called 525, was “Nike’s first ever, completely unsanctioned, super secret, invite only pop-up shop” and consisted of the “personal work of thirty Nike designers ranging from screen prints to paintings to jewelry to even baked goods.” It was wonderful to meet all the designers and to discuss the differences between their Nike work and their personal creations. They are a truly passionate and inspiring group of designers and if you are looking for a few last minute gift ideas be sure to check out their websites. Enjoy!
