Signs of change: Stevens Point Sculpture Park seeks new exhibits

By Lucas Jagodzinski
STEVENS POINT – Stevens Point Sculpture Park is looking to update its selection of exhibits. The park, located just off Second St. nd just behind Zenoff Park, offers a unique way for the community to take a few steps and experience unique and interactive artwork, while also providing a place for artists to showcase their work to an enthusiastic and diverse audience. group of people.

Currently, the park features 30 featured sculptures including works by artists from Stevens Point and Wisconsin Rapids, to artists from Coconut Grove, Florida, and Crested Butte, CO, and beyond.

From a toppled house to a climbing bench fit for a giant, the Stevens Point Sculpture Park has always been and will undoubtedly continue to be a place where creativity and artistic expression have few limits.

Another unique aspect of the park is the fact that it is dynamic; the exhibits in the park are constantly changing and evolving to keep the experience fresh. New exhibits at the park are introduced on a cyclical basis. Most exhibits in the park run for three years. This means that after three years the sculpture is removed and a new sculpture is displayed in its place.

Stevens Point Sculpture Park has begun the process of bringing in new artwork. The annual submission window is underway and interested artists have until May 20 to submit a piece for consideration.

Submissions for review must include a photo or photos of the artwork and any necessary supporting documentation. After the May 20 submission deadline, a committee will decide which submissions are chosen for display and all winning artists will be notified by June 17. The new artwork will be installed in August 2022, with a celebration tentatively scheduled for September 2022.
