Travel guru Everett Potter and author Julie Snyder featured the Sculpture Forest as part of a recent article about Whidbey Island on their nationally followed travel site! Julie traveled to Whidbey from Portland in her VW camper van and made a special point to visit us, as reminisced in “Van Go: Solo Travels on Whidbey Island“.

“I backtracked to Coupeville for a magical meander through the Price Sculpture Forest. A pair of aptly named loops—Nature Nurtured and Whimsy Way—wended through century-old trees and surprised with art at every turn… Each installation’s signage displayed a QR code that activated a video of the artist discussing their sculpture at its site. I had the forest to myself, which made the video interaction with the artists all the more intimate. Opened in October 2020, the sculpture forest is part of a sixteen-acre wooded wonderland anchoring Penn Cove… Price partnered with sculptors, volunteers, and community organizations to create this marvelous marriage of nature and art.”

Thank you for sharing your enjoyable stroll, Julie and Everett!
