Portland's Mayor Now Has a Portrait of Isaac Brock on His Wall

Posted by Ezra Ace Caraeff on Thu, Jun 3, 2010 at 2:54 PM

Um, so this is weird. Or, maybe it's totally normal for Portland. I don't even know any more.

Our esteemed mayor Sam Adams was presented with this life-sized oil painting portrait of Modest Mouse frontman Isaac Brock. Painted by local artist Alexander Rokoff, the painting is now hanging in the mayor's city hall office. I am not making any of this up.
