Events celebrate unveiling of new sculptures
Many of the artists whose sculptures will be part of the 2017-19 Gallery Without Walls will be on hand Friday night when the Arts Council of Lake Oswego hosts "Unveil Your Process!"
The exhibit, which is scheduled from 5-7 p.m. at the 510 Museum and ARTspace (510 First St.), kicks off a weekend of celebrations surrounding the unveiling of the gallery's newest public art. The display will feature the artists' preparatory work, including maquettes of the sculptures, drawings, paintings and other sculptural pieces.
On Sunday, the sculptures themselves will be the stars of "Unveil Your Art!" The party starts at 11 a.m. in Millennium Plaza Park and includes, food, entertainment, kids' activities, "drawing rallies" and docent-led tours on foot and by bus.
All of the weekend events are free and open to the public. For more information, go to www.artscouncillo.org.
Clackamas County creates eclipse website
In anticipation of the Aug. 21 solar eclipse, Clackamas County has developed an informational website filled with helpful tips for residents and visitors.
Oregon expects 1 million visitors during the eclipse, and the path of totality — in which the moon completely blocks the sun — partially runs through the southern part of Clackamas County. But because most of the full path is south of the county, the new web page at www.clackamas.us/eclipse also includes information from a variety of other counties, state agencies and experts.
Sections include items to bring; travel/transportation issues; general safety/public health tips; fire danger; garbage, solid waste and sanitation; and boating safety.
The county's Tourism and Cultural Affairs Department — branded as Oregon's Mt. Hood Territory — also has a webpage devoted to the eclipse. Find it online at www.mthoodterritory.com/solareclipse.
