In celebration of KINK FM’s 50th Anniversary, we present The Portland 50, a podcast series about the people who dreamt, built and championed the innovation, growth and uniqueness of Portland. Each episode is a narrative journey told by the founders, leaders and drivers behind some of Oregon’s best known companies, landmarks and industries.
In this week’s episode we feature former Mayor Bud Clark. As mayor he initiated and led the campaign to build the Oregon Convention Center, and he is known for his distinctive cry (whoop, whoop) . Outside of Portland, Bud Clark is best known as the raincoat-wearing model for the “Expose Yourself to Art” poster from 1978
