06/20/2011: "The Sculptures are Coming"
The San Juan Islands Museum and Sculpture Park is proud to announce "The Sculptures are Coming!" 18 new sculptures by artists nationwide are in the process of arriving at the Sculpture Park.
The large scale sculptures are transported by boat, truck, and ferry. A large crane is used to aid in installation at the Sculpture Park site and the visiting artists are staying at Roche Harbor during the installation of their artwork.
"It is an exciting time of growth at the IMA, we hope to expand our ability to bring art to the community and increase the awareness of the Islands as an art destination." Museum Director Jennifer Elise.
July 10, 2011 the Sculpture Park will begin the summer events with the "Sounds of Sculpture". Music by "Opa" and many more activities. This summer we will continue our FAD (Family Art Days) at the Park along with two other celebrations of music and sculpture at the park before fall.
