There are only a few weeks left to see the sculptures currently on display in downtown Kenosha before new sculptures are installed for Sculpture Walk—HarborPark 2022-2024.
Ten new sculptures will be installed on September 14 and 15, said Natalie Strohm, Sculpture Walk project manager.
“We are thrilled with the artistry of the new sculpture installation, especially since the new exhibit has been delayed due to the pandemic,” Strohm said. “We think people will enjoy the new sculptures.”
One of the new sculptures still needs support, Strohm said. The piece is “Whole of My Heart”, by artist Chris Plaisted. Individuals, businesses and organizations can support the sculpture by donating to the Kenosha Arts Fund, a component of the Kenosha Community Foundation, 600 52n/a St., Suite 110, Kenosha, WI 53140.

“Funds raised help support the artists who created each sculpture, and also go to support the arts throughout Kenosha County,” Strohm said. “It’s a wonderful opportunity to support public art and be part of a very popular point of interest in our community.”
The new sculptures will remain in place until September 2024.
Most of the sculptures are located along the boardwalk on the south side of HarborPark. Other locations are near Pierhead Lighthouse at Kenosha Water Utility, 100 52st Place, and Civic Center Park, 5600 Sheridan Road.
Strohm encourages anyone who hasn’t seen the current exhibit to do so.
