08/13/2010: "Family Art Days"
Saturday, August 14, 11 am - 4 pm at the IMA IMA Sculpture Park. Free, family-oriented art activity led by a local or visiting artist. Materials are provided.
The Sculpture Park is located at the entrance to Roche Harbor Resort. Join us to paint, print, bubble, build, bead - and much, much more! This Saturday enjoy Mandala making with Wynn Barnard and Maura Rendes!
The IMA Sculpture Park is located on over 19 acres in the San Juan Islands, adjacent to the Roche Harbor Community on the shores of Westcott Bay. We currently have over 100 sculptures on exhibit throughout the park, many of which are for sale.
Sculptures include works in bronze, stone, wood, metal, glass and ceramic by noted artists from the Pacific Northwest and beyond.
The IMA Sculpture Park has become one of the Northwest’s major art destinations, receiving over 30,000 regional, national, and international tourists.
The Park is a nature reserve, a 19-acre microcosm of San Juan Island ecology that includes forests, meadows, freshwater and saltwater wetlands, and rocky outcroppings. The trails throughout the reserve and the Park’s pond and inland ocean views provide a memorable nature walk with benches for rest and contemplation as one peruses the sculptures.
A self-guided tour map features works in the park with prices and signs indicating that the work is available for purchase, and there is a book in the gatehouse featuring detail about the artists.
The Sculpture Park is open year round, 7 days a week, from dawn until dusk.
