The Regional Arts and Culture Council (RACC) is holding a community meeting on Wednesday, November 7, 2018 in collaboration with The Rosewood Initiative to garner community conversation on a future public art project.

A panel, made up of community members, has selected artist Tyler Fuqua from Eagle Creek, Oregon, to create permanent public artwork for Lynchview Park, located at SE 165th Avenue and Market Street, adjacent to Patrick Lynch Elementary School at 1546 SE 169th Avenue. Tyler has prepared a concept for the artwork and will be present to share his design and listen to community feedback.

The community meeting will be Wednesday, November 7, from 6:00 to 7:00 PM at The Rosewood Initiative, 16126 SE Stark St, Portland, OR 97233. Free food will be served, and Spanish and Russian language translation and childcare will be provided.

Project Overview

A new playground area, pathways, benches, irrigation improvements, and other park amenities will be added to Lynchview Park, thanks to funding from the Parks Replacement Bond and System Development Charges. Lynchview Park is located at SE 165th Avenue and SE Market Street.

Through a Project Advisory Committee and Community Open House events, the community will help guide the development of a concept plan for the layout of the park and the design of the playground.
