She's been doing so since 1996, from Singapore to San Diego. On December 7, Portland joins the list, when Holzer will project a text onto the facade of the Portland Museum of Art. Text has been Holzer's preferred medium for more than 30 years.) {http://thephoenix.com/boston/arts/112161-jenny-holzers-projections-remake-buildings/}
