11th SculptureWalk kicks off in downtown Sioux Falls

Posted: Updated:
It's a big weekend for Downtown Sioux Falls with an event that will soon attract 300,000 people through September. The 11th SculptureWalk debuts along Phillips Avenue, Main Avenue and 8th Street starting Saturday.

The event started in 2003, it's an exhibit of original outdoor sculptures displayed year-round in downtown Sioux Falls, SD. 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 500 sculptures displayed since the event started. Artwork may be purchased after being displayed in SculptureWalk and many pieces from SculptureWalk are in private collections or donated to public organizations. In 2013, SculptureWalk added the SculptureWalk Expo, a two day indoor sculpture show running concurrently during the installation weekend of the year-long outdoor exhibit.
