Project Description /  Scope of Work

Clackamas County in collaboration with the Clackamas County Arts Alliance sought an artist to create a permanent traffic-mitigating public artwork that would signify entrance into the 172nd Avenue Roundabout and serve as a civic gateway to the City of Happy Valley.
