Memory 99 Dedication
PNCA dedicates Lee Kelly's Memory 99 on the site of the future Arlene and Harold Schnitzer Center for Art and Design.
As part of the PNCA Alumni Reunion, PNCA celebrates the new home of Memory 99 a significant work by PNCA alumnus Lee Kelly ‘59, on the Northwest Park Blocks adjacent to PNCA’s future Arlene and Harold Schnitzer Center for Art and Design. Kelly’s Memory 99 was the cornerstone of the Portland Art Museum’s retrospective of the artist’s work and finds a permanent home in this future park block thanks to a gift for its purchase provided by The Ford Family Foundation.
Made possible by a grant from the Visual Arts Program of The Ford Family Foundation (Roseburg, Oregon) to preserve public access to works of consequence by Oregon’s most significant visual artists.
See a Flickr gallery of the Memory 99 dedication which drew Portland dignitaries to the North Park Blocks. You can also read Portland Monthly‘s Culturephile report on the dedication event, and check out how the Oregonian photographer captured the event.
