Best Public Art Installation (non-gallery)

Art is one thing that allows us to emotionally process the turbulent past year. And there’s no public art installation quite like the annual Sculpture Tour Eau Claire, which fills the streets of downtown Eau Claire with dozens of unique works. Next up is the artwork in and around Artisan Forge Studios (1106 Mondovi Road, Eau Claire), which currently is hosting an exhibit in a partnership with the Chippewa Valley Museum called “Mettle and Mirth.” Finally, nothing says “Chippewa Valley” quite like The Brewing Projekt mural (1807 N. Oxford Ave., Eau Claire), which brightens the Cannery District. –Rebecca Mennecke
