Sculpture to become part of city's permanent art collection

With the help of more than 40 donors, the Arts Council of Lake Oswego has successfully raised the needed funds to acquire the Lee Kelly sculpture Angkor I.

“We are honored to be able to include a work by legendary Oregon artist Lee Kelly in the city’s public art collection.” said Nancy Nye, director of the arts council. “Now residents and visitors alike will have access to this magnificent work of art for generations to come.”by: SUBMITTED - Funds have been raised to purchase Lee Kelly's Angkor I for the Gallery Without Walls collection.

The sculpture had been on loan to the city of Lake Oswego’s Gallery Without Walls exhibit since 2011. Since then, the arts council hoped to raise enough money to buy it, and in May 2013 the council received an Art Acquisition Grant from the Ford Family Foundation, administered by the Oregon Arts Council.

The initial matching grant provided the impetus for the fundraising campaign to purchase the sculpture and make it part of the city’s permanent collection.

The sculpture is at Millennium Plaza Park.

A commemoration ceremony is being planned.
