Unless the council can raise the rest of the $55,000 needed to purchase the sculpture by 5 p.m. Nov. 1, the sculpture won’t become a permanent part of the Gallery Without Walls.

The Geary Family Foundation has made a pledge of $5,000 toward the purchase of the sculpture and Drs. R. Bastian and Barbara Wagner have offered a $10,000 challenge grant urging 10 contributors to match their gift with $1,000 each, or more.

“Downtown Lake Oswego has always been a big part of our lives both professionally and artistically, so we consider it important to support an outdoor living space available to our LO community,” said the Wagners in a release from the Arts Council. “We think of the Lee Kelly sculpture as an anchor to Millennium Plaza. It is a pivotal piece invoking the spirit of the lake and provides an artistically important visual gateway and connection to the lake.”

The Arts Council of Lake Oswego is a 501c3 non-profit organization. All contributions are tax-deductible.
