New pieces for the 10th year of SculptureWalk will be installed in Sioux Falls on Saturday morning. The 10th year of SculptureWalk begins this weekend with welders and artists installing 55 pieces Saturday morning. You'll be able to see artwork from around the world on Phillips Avenue, Main Avenue and 8th Street. You will also be able to check out the new SculptureWalk eXpo at the Washington Pavilion on Saturday and Sunday.
Artists and volunteers will be installing sculptures between 5:00am and 8:30am on Saturday. If you're looking to talk with different artists they will be in downtown Sioux Falls from 9:00am to 1:00pm.
The SculptureWalk eXpo will be at the Washington Pavilion on Saturday from 12:00pm to 10:00pm and on Sunday from 12:00pm to 4:00pm. Organizers say to celebrate a decade of downtown artwork the SculptureWalk installation will be held in conjunction with the new eXpo. 250 original sculptures will be displayed at the Washington Pavilion for the eXpo. Organizers say this will be the single largest free indoor sculpture exhibit in the upper Midwest. 48 international artists will participate in the eXpo.
SculptureWalk started back in 2003. If you've never been, it is an outdoor sculpture display that people can enjoy year-round. The sculptures are owned by sculptors from around the world and loaned to the exhibit.
From May through September, the public votes for The People's Choice sculpture, and that sculpture is purchased by the City of Sioux Falls. More than 300,000 people visit SculptureWalk each year, with more than 450 sculptures displayed since the event started. After being displayed in SculptureWalk, artwork can be purchased. That's why you see many pieces still around Sioux Falls at different private and public organizations.
The KSFY Morning News will be talking live with artists and organizers of SculptureWalk Friday morning on the show.
