Keith Lachowicz

Public Art Collections Manager


Keith helps steward the public art collections owned by the City of Portland and Multnomah County. His team—which includes the Collections Registrar, the Collections Specialist and the Conservation Technician—works together to maintain the health and welfare of much of the publicly owned art in and around Portland, from delicate prints in the Portable Works Collection to large-scale outdoor sculptures. While the maintenance of public art is Keith’s main responsibility at RACC, he also manages the Portland Building Installation Space program, provides design review for new %-for-art projects, and oversees various public art re-siting and renovation projects.

Keith and his wife Denise have lived in Portland since 2002, he has worked at RACC since 2007. When not busy pondering the mysteries of galvanic corrosion, Keith can be found bicycling, or when the stars align to allow extra time, building small wooden boats.
