Tilikum Crosing


It was cold, and windy, and gray.  But at least it wasn't raining.  It we met up with the cherry blossoms that we missed last month.

April Sketchcrawl - West End of Tilikum Crossing

Saturday, April 15: Tilikum Crossing Sketchcrawl

Sketch by Vicky Porter

Let's return to Tilikum Crossing, for the first time since the pandemic.  There are multiple bridges, the weird and wonderful architecture of the Life Sciences Building, and views across the river, down to the South Waterfront, and up to Pill Hill.

If it rains, there are many sheltered areas under the overhangs of the buildings to shelter in.  

Parking will be difficult.  But all streetcar lines pass through, along with the Orange MAXs and many buses.

The local Elephants is closed on weekends.  But Starbucks will be open.

  • 10am - Meet outside Flying Elephants at South Waterfront, 2730 S Moody Ave, Portland, OR 97201
  • 10:15-ish - Sketch
  • Noon - Meet again for a throw-down.
