My 3-D Adventure

The 3D Center of Art & Photography is a little museum between the Pearl and 23rd Street. We got there for the last day of an amazing exhibit of an original View Master artist – Joe Liptak. He had given over many of his models for the event and the museum had them displayed on a big table in the middle of the room, alongside View Masters containing the reels that the models were from.

Such a cool little museum – I highly recommend it. They offer classes in making your own 3D pictures as well! Its probably common knowledge that the View-Master came from Portland. A little Ginapedia…View-Masters came along in 1938. They’re still a relatively unchanged entertaining toy. No small feat with all the technology in our lives now! The military used View-Master reels for training. You can even find them on EBay from time to time.
