Since 1996, Krasl Art Center has been celebrating art and community with its Biennial Sculpture Invitational. The Biennial places large-scale contemporary sculpture outdoors throughout the cities of St. Joseph and Benton Harbor, Michigan – along the scenic waterfronts and parks, and integrated throughout urban and artist communities. This special exhibition shows the finest artworks by today’s public artists. It is accessible, engaging and fosters exploration of both fine art and its surroundings.
The 2018 Biennial Sculpture Invitational was supported by civic partnerships with the cities of St. Joseph and Benton Harbor, and cultural collaborations with the New Territory Arts Association and the Box Factory for the Arts.

KRASL’S COLLECTION JOINS THE BIENNIAL
As Krasl Art Center’s grounds were under construction summer 2018 as part of its Sculpting Community project, KAC’s permanent collection moved offsite and joined the Biennial Sculpture Invitational in the community. New surroundings for familiar artworks provided fresh contexts, encouraged seeing the works anew, and celebrated over 35 years of collecting sculpture.
