Local Public Art Projects Receive National Awards

Wednesday, June 17, 2015

 

"This All Happened More or Less" on SE Division St.

Americans for the Arts, the nation’s leading nonprofit organization for advancing the arts and arts education, recently honored 31 of the most outstanding public art projects in the country last year.

Three of the projects came from Portland administered by the Regional Arts & Culture Council (RACC).

The honored projects include: "This All Happened More or Less" by Crystal Schenk and Shelby Davis on Southeast Division Street; Westmoreland Nature Play, in which artist  Adam Kuby worked with Greenworks Landscape Architects; The Rippling Wall by artist David Franklin at Portland Fire Station 21.

The awards were announced in Chicago, Illinois on June 11 and were chosen from more than 300 works completed in 2014.

The awards were selected by AFTA’s Public Art Network (PAN) Year in Review program, the only national program that recognizes the nation’s most compelling public art.
