Travis Stewart and Lee Kelly — “The Importance of Public Art”

In partnership with McMinnville’s Committee for Public Art, the City Club welcomes the artists who created the two sculptures for roundabouts on the renovated Hill Road in Northwest McMinnville. They will describe the meaning behind those works and more, and lead a discussion about why more art in public makes for stronger communities.

Travis Stewart is a contemporary Northwest artist of Chinook, Rogue River and Kalapuya descent. He lives in Grand Ronde and works in a variety of mediums to depict stories defined by the cultural landscape and design of the Willamette Valley and Columbia River people. He also works as an Interpretive Coordinator for the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde.

Lee Kelly is a sculptor living and working in the Pacific Northwest. Kelly is most recognized for his monumental scale sculpture for public and private collections. During his long and acclaimed career he has created important studio works, paintings and works on paper.
