Welcome to Sculpture Northwest

Visit Island, San Juan, Skagit, and Whatcom counties to discover the Northwest's best Public Sculpture

Price Sculpture Forest is a new sculpture park that is encouraging Sculpture Northwest members to exhibit their outdoor sculptures year-round for exhibition to the public. The park is located in Coupeville on Whidbey Island, spread across 16 forested acres overlooking Penn Cove. Construction is underway now, with a soft opening for the public around August and a second official opening next year. The park has two loop trails that wander through dense native habitat, interspersed with prime viewing locations for sculptures embedded within the forest to delight and educate visitors.

To encourage the best work from the sculptors, for early participants Sculpture Forest is offering zero commission, insurance paid, no entry fee, and marketing. There are two initial exhibition themes: Nature Nurtured (relating to the natural world, elements, living things, or our relationship to them) and Whimsy Way (fun, interesting, humorous, or unique). More information can be seen about the park at SculptureForest.org plus on Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn.

We’re making our region a destination for the art-loving public

Sculpture Northwest is a non-profit organization that was conceived on a dream to fill one of the most beautiful regions in North America with outstanding public sculpture to match the majesty of the natural beauty of Northwest Washington State. Our goal is to promote these four northwestern Counties – Island, San Juan, Skagit, and Whatcom – as a “cultural tourist” destination for those of you with a passion for public sculpture. We assist both established and emerging sculptors in exhibiting and selling their sculpture, and we help these four counties to sponsor sculpture exhibits and place public sculpture in their communities.
