Price Sculpture Forest displays sculpture in a beautiful forest to create a fun experience for all ages. Wander past century old trees as you wonder at the sculptures by artists from Whidbey and across the US. Discover art hidden behind native understory and hanging from trees on an accessible walking path. Access the self-guided tour on your mobile phone to watch short videos of each artist describing their sculpture. Coupeville’s Price family created this unique experience to preserve their 16-acre forest and share it with locals and visitors.
The Sculpture Forest is located 1 ½ miles east of downtown Coupeville. It is open every day from dawn to dusk. Admission is free. No dogs, please. Visit http://www.SculptureForest.org for more information.
SARATOGA ORCHESTRA of Whidbey Island, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, was formed in 2007 as an expansion of the Saratoga Chamber Players founded by Whidbey Island’s legendary violinist and arts supporter, Michael Nutt. Previously known as Saratoga Chamber Orchestra, the name is derived from the beautiful Saratoga Passage that flanks the east side of Whidbey Island and the stand of trees known as the Saratoga Woods.
