Featured ArtPrize Artist - Jason Quigno

Three Sisters, 3D, Fieldstone, 2017

Anishinaabe Artist Jason Quigno was born in 1975 in Alma MI. Working in all types of stone and always evolving pushing the limits of the stone and of himself, Jason strives for simplicity, movement, balance, and beauty in each sculpture.

Three fieldstone boulders with organically carved lines will create Three Sisters.
