Welcome to Sculpture Northwest

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

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.

Restoring Joseph Kinnebrew sculptures

For the past several months Sculpture Northwest has been working on restoring a collection of Joseph Kinnebrew sculptures. We have made arrangements for leasing a warehouse at Bellingham Airport thru the Port of Bellingham. Restoration of the first of these, “Meditation” a powder coated steel sculpture has been completed. We are well on our way to completing two more later this summer. The work is being done by Hayley-Ann Law, a recent graduate of Bellingham Technical College along with the assistance of sculptor Shirley Erickson.

“Valley of Our Spirits”

On Mount Vernon’s Riverwalk Park along the Skagit River a new sculpture to honor the native people was recently installed. “Valley of Our Spirits” is a 20-foot iron tower containing rocks from the Skagit River, is adorned with images of fish and animals in stainless steel and colored glass, with an eagle on top looking toward downtown Mount Vernon. Funded by the Mount Vernon Arts Commission, it’s the work of sculptor Milo White, glass artist and Sculpture Northwest board member Lin McJunkin, and artist Jay Bowen of the Upper Skagit Tribe.
