Chris Sorensen Sculpture Project - A Sierra Art Trails Public Art Project

Sierra Art Trails established the Sierra Art Trails Public Art Fund In 2008.  This year we are thrilled to announce our first official public art project, the installation of a large outdoor sculpture at Gallery Row in Oakhurst. The sculpture will be created by Fresno’s “Man of Steel” Chris Sorensen, and placed at Gallery Row in time for the Sierra Art Trails Preview Exhibit in September. 

We are very pleased to report that our project has been funded, with over $7000 in donations through Kickstarter, and from our friends, clients, and community members.  Thank you all for your donations!  The sculpture is complete and on display at Sorensen Studio in Fresno until the base platform is complete in Oakhurst.  Stay tuned for more info!
