Art in Place

   As a collaboration of Cloudstone Foundation and Island Bohemians we are inviting artists to participate in a project reflecting on the sculptures and spirit of Hank Nelson’s Cloudstone Sculpture Park on Whidbey Island, Washington.
  The project is to last one year, August 2020 through July 2021. The goal is to creatively capture the seasons and essence of a unique park area containing over 450 sculptural works by Henry D. Nelson.
  Images of work produced as the result of an artist’s visits to Cloudstone are to be collected and published in a high quality book.
