Located in beautiful Happy Valley outside of Lenoir, NC the Western North Carolina Sculpture Center aims to offer engaging and robust arts programming to the surrounding community.

Upcoming Events

Join  us  on  June  3, 2023 for Iron Light!
Each year we welcome sculptors from around the United States and beyond to participate in Iron Light, a group iron casting residency and gathering.  This year's artists in residence and artist interns will be creating new artwork to be exhibited at the sculpture park in a public demonstration of the iron casting process. Blacksmithing, live music by Sycamore Bones as well as food trucks will be present at this family friendly event. A children's activities area will also entice our young visitors. 
Do not miss this exciting and unique process.
