In conjunction with the 2012 Cloverdale Annual Sculpture Exhibit, June 2 through September 26, there will be an anniversary exhibit celebrating the first nine years of the Cloverdale Annual Sculpture Exhibit. Past Best of Show Winners have agreed to participate by bringing back to Cloverdale a sculpture; some pieces returning are the original winning sculptures. Below are photographs of the past winning sculptures.
Cloverdale Boulevard underwent a major transformation and face-lift in the central business district in 2003. The Boulevard, as it is today, is the result of this transformation.
In conjunction with the revamping of Cloverdale Boulevard, a public art project, Cloverdale Transformation Art, turned the boulevard construction site into a work of art. The K-rails running the length of Cloverdale Boulevard in the downtown area were transformed into undulating waves of construction materials that brought interest and activity to the downtown area during the renovation. The project was headed by three Cloverdale citizens: Ron Siegemund, artist; Albert Walker, construction designer; and Joyce P. Mann, Boulevard Publicist. Sketch by Albert Walker
A second artistic project began at the same time as the boulevard transformation. The project, a juried sculpture exhibit, Sculpting Transformation, changed the Cloverdale Plaza into a sculpture garden. Sculptors from around the North Bay Area were invited to participate in this public art endeavor for the residents of Cloverdale and visitors to the community to enjoy. Eight sculptors participated in the first Annual Cloverdale Sculpture Exhibit. The sculpture exhibit was sponsored by the City of Cloverdale and designed and produced by Joyce P. Mann, Boulevard Publicist.
2012 marks the 10th Anniversary of the Annual Cloverdale Sculpture Exhibit. Each year the exhibit has grown with exhibit space expanding to the boulevard sidewalks. The first exhibit attracted mainly sculptors from Sonoma County. In later years sculptors from the greater Bay Area participated, followed by sculptors state-wide. As Cloverdale's reputation as an arts destination grew, sculptors from across the country entered and participated.
From 2003 through 2008, the City of Cloverdale sponsored the exhibit and retained a program manager. The Cloverdale Arts Alliance hosted the opening exhibit reception in the Plaza. In 2009 the Cloverdale Arts Alliance took over the management of the exhibit with the City continuing to sponsor the event. During the 10 years of the annual sculpture exhibit, Tedd Peterson has been the exhibit photographer.
