Lee Kelly’s large-scale sculpture to be a gateway to Emerging Cultural Corridor in North Park Blocks

PORTLAND, OR – JUNE 6, 2012 – At its 10th annual gala on Saturday, June 2, Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA) announced that it had received a gift to its permanent art collection of an important work by alumnus Lee Kelly ‘59. The Ford Family Foundation gave the College a special, one-time gift to acquire Kelly’s Memory 99 as part of the Foundation’s evolving Visual Arts program established to honor the interests and memory of one of its co-founders, Mrs. Hallie Ford. Memory 99 is intended to be installed in the North Park Blocks in proximity to PNCA’s Arlene and Harold Schnitzer Center for Art and Design (511 NW Broadway) for which the College just announced a capital campaign and lead gift of $5 million from The Harold & Arlene Schnitzer CARE Foundation.
