New art installed

by: submitted photo Artist Olinka Broadfoot poses with her sculpture “Siblings, which has been installed on First Street between A and Evergreen.

Have you noticed 'August Trunk,' the elephant sculpture, has moved from its place on the plaza on State Street? This favorite sculpture, which received the most votes in the People's Choice Ballot this spring, has been moved to A Avenue near Wells Fargo Bank and now serves as an entry to the downtown Gallery Without Walls.

The Arts Council of Lake Oswego is in the process of installing 15 sculptures throughout the downtown area. Taking 'August Trunk's' prime space on the plaza on State Street is 'Dancer' by Ken Turner.

'Dancer' and the 29 sculptures that make up the GWW exhibit are on loan from the artists for a two-year period. All the art is for sale.

A free public reception will be held Aug. 26 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Millennium Plaza Park. All are invited to meet the artists and several tours of the sculptures will be held throughout the evening.

The Arts Council has a free app, which highlights tours and information about the sculptures. The apps can be found for iPhones at the App Store under L.O. Art Tour; and for smartphones at www.artscouncillo.org/tour.
