Gallery Without Walls

Gallery Without Walls outdoor sculpture exhibit features over seventy permanent and loaned works of art. It is open all year 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. They are all available for purchase. All other artwork in the Gallery Without Walls belongs to the City of Lake Oswego’s permanent art collection.

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