“The Seafarer” – Jeff Olson, Artist – Donated 2012

A painter in his pre-retirement years, Olson has built a solid reputation as a sculptor since moving to Door County full time a decade ago. We are honored that Olson has chosen Egg Harbor as his home and especially grateful for his beautiful donated work to the Village’s permanent collection of public art; The Seafarer (above) being the first. Located at the end of the Village Marina, resting among the rocks.

He is the artist behind a number of carved structures in the county:

  • The carved totem poles at Not Licked Yet,
  • Bubba, the wooden golfer at Stonehedge Golf Course
  • The Performers (below),the limestone carving at the Peg Egan Performing Arts Center
  • Among others

He also sells sculptures at Edgewood Orchard Galleries and coordinates carvers for Sturgeon Bay’s annual Fire & Ice Festival, which he also participates in.
