What Makes this event different?

Artwork will be on display throughout the downtown business district for a two-year exhibition period starting in the summer of 2019. While on exhibit, sculptures must be available for purchase. Artists should have some experience with public art and be interested in expanding their practice into the public realm, but do not need an exhibition history with public art in order to apply. In its nineteenth year, the gallery’s mission is to integrate art into the daily lives of local residents and visitors to the community by presenting works from regional, national, and internationals artists that resonate with people of diverse backgrounds. We seek artists working in a variety of media and encourage proposals that engage, educate, and inspire the community. Up to fifteen artists will be chosen by the Selection Committee to provide a work of art for outdoor public display in Lake Oswego. In recognition, the Arts Council will provide each selected artist with an honorarium of $850.

Selection Process:

The Selection Committee will jury on two levels; first for general quality of the artist’s body of work, and then on the piece(s) submitted with the application materials. The objective of the Selection Committee is to create an exhibition of quality works of art that reflect the greatest potential for diversity in accordance with the City of Lake Oswego's Public Art Guidelines.
