2017 Sculptures

We are pleased to have the new works displayed below as part of our 2017 Sculpture Walk. New works are added to the program every year in late May, and are on display for a year. Online galleries of new works from each year are archived on our site.

Returning, or Encore pieces spend 2-3 years on the Walk. Pieces in the permanent collection, murals around town, and special works like the new Shaynowishkung (Chief Bemidji) statue in Library Park, and the Veterans Memorial, can also be found on our map.

Most New and Encore work is available for private sale. Contact us for more info about buying the art you see on the Walk. Thank you.
