A sculptor in Algoma is a new winner of a prestigious award. Bren Sibilsky received an Award of Excellence in the 2019 Manhattan Arts Show for her sculpture entitled “Visionary, Call to Spirit”. The sculpture was a part of “The Healing Power of Art” exhibit. This is the third year in which Sibilsky has won an award at the Manhattan Arts Show. Sibilsky says she was inspired to create “Visionary, Call to Spirit” when she visited with members of the Potawatomi Tribe, who originally were settled where Algoma is today. Sibilsky says she hopes it will inspire people to learn the history of Algoma and the history of lakefront in Kewaunee County.
Sibilsky is a full-time artist who grew up in Green Bay and now lives in Algoma. Her studio is located in Algoma and is open to the public from May until September.
