Sculpture Show

The Arts Commission selects new sculptures on a competitive basis and exhibits them on a walking tour throughout La Conner. These impressive works, on loan from sculptors around the Northwest, are for exhibit and for sale. Proceeds from sales are used to purchase public art for the Town of La Conner. "Crossing Point" at the Skagit County Historical  Museum; "Apple Tree" and "Spirit Wheel" near Maple Hall are examples of public art the Town owns. The Arts Commission manages La Conner's permanent collection of art and sculptures.
