Call for Art
2024–2026 GALLERY WITHOUT WALLS
We are pleased to invite artist submissions for outdoor public display in Lake Oswego’s nationally recognized, award-winning outdoor Gallery Without Walls exhibit. In its twenty-fourth year, this program’s mission is to integrate art into the daily lives of residents and visitors to the community by presenting works from regional, national, and international artists that resonate with people of diverse backgrounds. Artwork will be displayed throughout the downtown business district for a two-year exhibition starting in the Summer of 2024.
Artists can submit completed works and proposals for new works for installation in August of 2024. We seek works of various media, including sculpture, social practice, new media, projections, and murals. We encourage proposals that engage, educate, and inspire the community. Submissions of artwork created within the last three years are highly encouraged.
The Selection Committee will choose up to fifteen artists to display. The selected artists will receive an honorarium award of $1000. Selected artists are also eligible for an annual People’s Choice purchase award of up to $20,000 (with a 30% gallery fee).
