Joe Van Cleave

Chainsaw sculpture was a natural progression for Joe Van Cleave. Growing up in rural Minnesota he always appreciated nature and looked for creative outlets, So when Joe’s dad started experimenting with chainsaw carving he decided to give it a try too. Today, his work is constantly evolving as he works to improve with every new challenge.

About the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund

In 2008, Minnesota voters passed a landmark piece of legislation — the Minnesota Clean Water, Land, and Legacy Amendment — which provided funding to public television stations serving audiences in Minnesota. Its mission is to help preserve and document the treasures of culture, history, and heritage that make Minnesota special, and to increase access to the natural and cultural resources we all share. Click here for more information.
