Happy Valley Sculpture Garden
In July, City Council dedicated six new sculptures in the Happy Valley Sculpture Garden. The sculptures were selected by a committee comprised of Happy Valley residents, City employees, and representatives from the Clackamas County Arts Alliance.
All art sculptures in the Sculpture Garden were created by Oregon artists and were produced using a variety of recycled materials. The sculptures are on loan for a two-year period from the artists, and are available for purchase during that time.
The Happy Valley rotating sculpture garden program was inspired by local resident Jim Grady who envisioned enlivening the areas around City Hall with Public Art. In March of 2013, City Council approved this program, and in June of 2013, the new Happy Valley Sculpture Garden became a reality!
The Happy Valley Sculpture Garden celebrates Public Art and gives City Hall visitors and staff up close and personal access to a variety of artworks. It is Happy Valley’s hope that the Sculpture Garden program will enhance public land, promote a cultural environment and art appreciation within the community.

This sculpture speaks to the continuous cycle of life, self-regulating, adding and subtracting to maintain “balance”. The four colors represent air, water, earth and fire – the building blocks for life. The polished sphere reflects the viewer’s image, reinforcing that they are a critical part of the equation.
The boxed forms in Harmony are 1/8” steel, seal welded and painted with automotive paint. The ring is made from pipe and the base is ½” steel. The stainless sphere is a high quality chemical tank float.
