Since the early days of La Conner, the arts have been an important part of the culture of our community – today La Conner is known as one of Washington State’s most-loved arts communities.
Each year, the La Conner Arts Commission selects sculptures, on a competitive basis, and then exhibits them as a sculpture exhibit walking tour throughout town. These impressive works, on loan from sculptors around the Northwest, are for exhibit and for sale. The 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; and the “Fish Bridge”, currently by the boat launch, are examples of public art the Town owns. The Arts Commission manages La Conner’s permanent collection of art and sculptures.
Below you’ll find information on the current exhibit.
