A fifteen-foot high sculpture by renowned Oregon artist Lee Kelly [will be installed on the northeast corner of campus] next month, just northeast of the art building. The untitled sculpture crafted of steel in 1974 was donated to Willamette by SAIF Corporation, a not-for-profit workers’ insurance company with a campus in Salem.


Kelly, born on a ranch in Idaho in 1932, has been prolific producing art full-time since 1965. The PNCA alumnus is most well known for his massive steel sculptures. His work can be seen all along the northwest coast and dotted throughout Oregon.
