About the Percival Plinth Sculpture Project:

The Percival Plinth Sculpture Project selects fifteen sculptures each year to be displayed on the City of Olympia’s Percival Landing. During the month of July community members and visitors have the opportunity to vote for their favorite. The sculpture with the most votes will be awarded the People’s Choice Sculpture Award and be added to the City’s permanent art collection. After you turn in your 2017 ballot feel free to visit the 2016 winning sculpture Joie de Vivre by David Varnau currently on display at Olympia City Hall.
