Lake Oswego’s public art program is unique as 15 new pieces are loaned to the city each year. With the combination of both temporary and permanent pieces, over 70 public sculptures make their home in Lake Oswego. As the permanent sculptures become beloved characters and fixtures throughout the City, the rotating sculptures allow the community to enjoy NEW artwork, processes, themes, media, styles, and outstanding talent each year.

This exhibition aims to start a conversation in our community about the themes of connection and isolation, regret and hope, angst and acceptance. Artists were asked to consider how art can create a space for dialogue about issues – social, political, and personal -- that affect us all. Some of the artists use nature as their inspiration, finding solace and hope in the great outdoors. Others seek out community connections, creating fellowship among shared experiences. Still others express their individual experiences with PTSD, infertility, cultural boundaries, and the current political climate.
There will be a diversity of media represented including photography, collage, sculpture, painting, and mixed-media.
The exhibition runs: Feb. 2 - Feb. 28
First Friday Reception: Friday, Feb. 2, 5-7 p.m.
