75 If any building signaled the triumph of Postmodernism in architecture it was the Portland Building (1980) by Michael Graves. This monumental governmental office building featured wildly exuberant decoration. The oversized decorative motifs seem intentionally humorous—Postmodern irony. There was an artist, Raymond Kaskey, involved in the project, but he had nothing to do with this decoration. Rather, Kaskey created a huge allegorical figure of Portland set at the base of the building. Taken together, the art and architecture seem to represent the conservative strain of Postmodernism.
79 It was a “Step 4” reading book in a Random House series that also features True-Life Treasure Hunts and To the Top! Climbing the World’s Highest Mountains.

The book gave a very good introduction to the war and the memorial, but what was most outstanding was that I had purchased the book at Shop ’n Save. The supermarket, as public a site as you could find in Skowhegan these days, had no other books on art of any sort.
