Sculpture Commissions

Sculptureworks has worked with several cities, libraries, public art committees, and private individuals to commission works of art with our sculptors. Sculptureworks is dedicated to meeting and maintaining the needs and wants of the customers while simultaneously allowing the sculptors to freely express their talents with artistic license.

Sculptureworks strives to facilitate the commission process for all art lovers. We provide functional intermediary services for experienced art connoisseurs as well as step by step guidance for first-time art buyers. Please contact us for more information if you would like to pursue a commission with one of our artists. We will be pleased to assist you.

Some of the recent commissions Sculptureworks has facilitated include:
