“Magic” by John Adduci of Chicago is one of the 10 sculptures that will soon be replaced in the Sculpture Walk.

New Lakefront Sculpture Exhibit installation slated for Sept. 14-15

Only a few weeks remain to view the current HarborPark sculptures


Founded in 1926 as a tax-exempt public charity, we are a collection of endowed and donor-advised charitable funds established by individuals, families, organizations, and businesses.

The 2022-24 sculpture “Whole of My Heart” by artist Chris Plaisted is still in need of sponsorship support.

Just a few weeks remain to view the current sculptures on display in the downtown Kenosha area before new sculptures will be installed for Sculpture Walk — HarborPark 2022-2024.

Ten new sculptures will be installed Sept. 14-15, said Natalie Strohm, Sculpture Walk project manager.

“We are thrilled about the artistry of the new sculpture installation, especially since the new exhibit was delayed due to the pandemic,” Strohm said. “We think people will enjoy the new sculptures.”

One of the new sculptures is still in need of support, Strohm said. The piece is “Whole of My Heart,” by artist Chris Plaisted.

Individuals, businesses and organizations can support the sculpture through donations to the Kenosha Arts Fund, a component of the Kenosha Community Foundation, 600 52nd St., Suite 110, Kenosha, WI 53140.

“The funds raised help support the artists who have created each sculpture, and also go toward supporting the arts throughout Kenosha County,” Strohm said.

“This is a wonderful opportunity to support public art and to be a 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 promenade on the south side of HarborPark. Additional locations are near the Pierhead Lighthouse at the Kenosha Water Utility, 100 52st Place, and Civic Center Park, 5600 Sheridan Road.

Strohm encourages anyone who has not seen the current exhibit to do so. The current temporary exhibit sculptures are:
