Gallery Without Walls

Gallery Without Walls is a unique outdoor sculpture exhibit, containing eighty permanent and loaned works of art. The exhibition is open year-round, and is free for everyone to enjoy. Our downtown rotating exhibition features approximately thirty sculptures on-loan from artists for a period of two years, all of which are available for purchase. All other artwork in the Gallery Without Walls belongs to the City of Lake Oswego’s permanent art collection.

Gallery Without Walls is administered by the Arts Council of Lake Oswego, a nonprofit 501(c)3 arts organization. The Arts Council’s mission is to ensure the arts are an integral part of life in Lake Oswego, and we work in partnership with City agencies, local businesses, and community members to bring sculptures to our streets.
