Follow Your Art, a celebration of the unveiling of the new additions to the Gallery Without Walls, will be held Aug. 16 beginning at 5:30 p.m. at Millennium Plaza Park.

“Our 15 new on-loan sculptures are sure to delight and engage residents and visitors alike, while strengthening the city’s profile and economy,” said Nancy Nye, executive director of the Arts Council of Lake Oswego. Nye said that several kinetic sculptures were added to the collection this year.

Many of the artists who created the new additions to the Gallery Without Walls will attend the celebration and introduce their work to the community. Guided tours of the collection will be led during the event. The celebration will feature food and beverages provided by The Stafford, children’s art activities provided by Play Boutique, music and entertainment. Prudential Northwest Properties is a major sponsor of the event.

This year’s theme for the event is inspired by traditional Chinese festivals. Millennium Plaza Park will be decked out with red lanterns and red dragon banners draped from the pergola. Traditional Chinese music, ribbon dancers and a performance by festive lion dancers from the Northwest Dragon and Lion Dance Association will add their festive touches.

The event is free and the public is encouraged to attend.

The new sculptures are on loan for a two year period. All are for sale. For information, contact Nye at 503-675-3738 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
