Ivan Smith’s “Guns ‘n’ Roses” sculpture is one of the pieces from the 2012-13 Bemidji Sculpture Walk for sale by artists.

“We are willing to accept a down payment and monthly payments; payment in full is not due until delivery, which would be in early May,” said Al Belleveau, founder of the Sculpture Walk. “I will even put a red bow on any piece that is sold. A brochure listing the different installations, artist and sale price can be picked up at the Tourist Information Center.”

Some of the pieces are consumer-friendly at $400; prices range to a maximum of $15,000 for the Buffalo Calf Woman. All of the prices are listed, along with the artist’s name, on a bronze plate attached to the base. Contact Mitch Blessing, board president, at Design Angler, 497-1000, or Belleveau at 368-7330, if interested in purchasing a sculpture.

The Sculpture Walk is funded, in part, by commissions from the sales and the contributions of local businesses and patrons.

The call already has gone out for 2013-14 artists’ submissions for this juried sculpture walk. Information on how to apply and the requirements can be found online at bemidjisculpture.org.

Applications to become a member of the Bemidji Sculpture Walk Board of Directors are being accepted. The meetings are held at 5 p.m. the first Monday of the month at Design Angler, 117 Fifth St. NW. Use the website above for more information or to submit an application.
