All invited to GWW's celebration

New sculptures added


Don’t miss the birthday party of the Gallery Without Walls to start at 3 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 30 at Millennium Plaza Park in Lake Oswego. The Gallery Without Walls, Lake Oswego’s acclaimed public art program, is celebrating its 15th anniversary of integrating art into the lives of residents and visitors through its city-wide outdoor sculpture gallery.

The party will feature everything you’d expect at a birthday party: free cake and live Calypso music, with popcorn, hot dogs and beverages available for purchase.

The event begins with a short program to introduce the artists of the sculptures recently installed in the exhibit and acknowledge the program founders. Attendees then will be separated into groups to tour the gallery with one of the artists and a docent.

This nationally recognized exhibit showcases some of the country’s most outstanding sculptors including notable Oregon artist Lee Kelly. Approximately 30 of the sculptures are rotating pieces on loan from the artists for two years, the rest are owned by the city of Lake Oswego. All rotating artwork is available for purchase.

The celebration and tours are free and open to the public. Millennium Plaza Park is located at 200 First St.

The Gallery Without Walls is administered by the Arts Council of Lake Oswego, a nonprofit organization.
