Only $10,000 more needed to purchase sculpture
The Arts Council of Lake Oswego has received two sizable contributions toward the remaining $25,000 needed to purchase the sculpture Angkor I, currently on loan from artist Lee Kelly and the Elizabeth Leach Gallery.
Unless the council can raise the rest of the $55,000 needed to purchase the sculpture by 5 p.m. Nov. 1, the sculpture wont 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. For more information, contact Director Nancy Nye at 503-675-3738 or email@example.com. Visit artscouncillo.org for more.Add a comment
