‘The Lightkeeper’ sculpture enhances Port Clinton Lighthouse

Jun 3, 2020 | Featured | 3 comments

An exceptional sculpture by Port Clinton artist Andy Sacksteder will enhance the attractive Port Clinton Lighthouse this summer, with “The Lightkeeper” portraying a lighthouse keeper leaving his post at the lighthouse after a long night’s vigil, his trusty dog in tow.

The sculpture is adjacent to the lighthouse, and will remain on loan to the City of Port Clinton in Waterworks Park until fall.

Unfortunately, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s Port Clinton Lighthouse and Maritime Festival will not be held this year. The festival will return on Saturday, Aug. 21, 2021.

    Can you at least get in to see the sculpture?
    And are dogs allowed?

      Steve, according to our information the public spaces are open, while the restrooms, playgrounds, etc. are currently closed. This would be considered part of the public spaces, so it is open. Where dogs are allowed in the public spaces they must be leashed and cleaned up after. If they are not allowed there will be signs posted on-site.
