Lovejoy a work in progress
40 min, video

Lovejoy focuses on Portland's fabled Lovejoy Columns--a series of fanciful paintings on concrete freeway columns made by Greek immigrant Tom Stefopoulos, who in 1948, began painting while working as a switchman for the rail yard. Renwick chronicled the turbulent efforts to save and restore the columns.
