129th Annual Silver Mine
Enjoy this outdoor, interactive, free exhibit of sculptures displayed nearly year-round, twenty-four hours a day. The sculptures are owned by the artists who created them and are loaned to Eau Claire’s exhibit for 48-50 weeks. The artists are from Eau Claire, United States, Canada, and abroad featuring a variety of styles, materials and sizes. Each May a new set of sculptures arrives in the Eau Claire community for display and enjoyment. These sculptures are available to purchase with prices listed in the Sculpture Tour brochure.
On our website are some suggested activities that can be used during your visit:
