Outdoor Sculpture Trail in Cloverdale

Artist Highlights

Loren Madsen Alien

Every month we add artist highlights to the Sculpture Gallery. Check back to view the latest!

Loren Madsen of Laytonville, has a unique sculpture, "Alien" in the Farmers Market on Cloverdale Blvd. near E. 2nd Street, as part of the Cloverdale Sculpture Trail. "Alien" is made from a fir tree, which had grown two trunks. Loren dug out around the roots and included them in the sculpture inverting the whole tree so that it stands on the tips of the two trunks… more

The arrival of new sculptures for the Sculpture Trail is always greatly anticipated in Cloverdale as every sculpture exhibits the transmutation of material and the imagination of the sculptor. 12 new sculptures have been selected for the 2018-2019 Cloverdale Sculpture Trail. As we welcome new sculptures, we also say good-bye to our favorites.

Mudgett Sphere

David Mudgett started exhibiting, off and on, in Cloverdale in 2005 and his "Eclipse" sculpture will be on display in 2018-2019. David built his first sphere 20 years ago and he keeps going back to spheres. As he experiments with different sphere components, both the difficulty in building the sphere and the fulfillment increases.


Stan Huncilman has also returned with another of his colorful and whimsical sculptures; this time with "Caprichio", a Spanish word for "whim".

The beauty of art is that if a hundred people sees the same artwork, there could be a hundred different ideas and interpretations of the same work. And, what better way to enjoy, embrace and interpret sculptures in our daily lives than in public accessible places, the streets of Cloverdale.
