Hands Across Eau Claire

You don’t have to travel very far in Eau Claire before you notice at least one of the colorful hand statues displayed in front of local businesses, public locations and even private homes. Since 2005, the Children’s Museum of Eau Claire has placed hands all across the local community through “Hands Across Eau Claire,” a unique art parade that generates both community awareness and resources for the Children’s Museum, all while beautifying our city’s landscape.

More than 100 hands have been produced and are on display throughout our community.
