Portland, Oregon, is a city that loves art! It’s hard to wander anywhere in the downtown area without running into a statue, sculpture, or memorial of some kind. What’s your preference? Wildlife? Historical figures? Classic Greco-Roman? Abstract or Modern Art? You’re sure to find something here that will pique your interest–either down the block or around the next corner.

For those who don’t have time to take a Public Art Walking Tour of the city, you might want to check out the Evan H. Roberts Memorial Sculpture Mall. It’s easily found on the east side of the Portland Art Museum, just outside the doors of the Museum Shop. There are about a dozen sculptures on display by some of the Pacific NW’s most prominent artists.

The Evan H. Roberts Memorial Sculpture Mall is located at 1219 SW Park Avenue in Portland, OR. Hours mirror those of the Portland Art Museum. Admission is free. For those who want to linger in the courtyard, there are a few bistro-style tables and chairs available. The perfect spot to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea on a brisk autumn day!
