Now presenting our 12th SculptureTour Salina exhibition in downtown Salina! SculptureTour Salina (STS) is a catalyst to bring people downtown to experience art in an incredibly accessible way. This is an outdoor exhibit, readily available to everyone. SculptureTour Salina is an annual juried exhibition open to all artists creating works suitable for outdoor display.
Between 15 and 25 sculptures are selected and carefully sited in historic downtown Salina. Sculptures then remain installed for one year and the program is marketed to provide both viewing enjoyment to the community and visitors as well as a sales opportunity for participating artists.
This self guided walking tour encourages local citizens and visitors, young and old, to vote for their favorite sculpture in the People's Choice Award program. The voting ballots can be found in silver boxes on the sculpture pedestals located near most mid-block crosswalk structures. You can also find them at many of the downtown restaurants and boutiques. The sculpture with the most votes is purchased by the City of Salina at the purchase price, up to $15,000 and remains in Salina for the public to enjoy!
Sculptures are also available for purchase. To date, more than 40 sculptures have been purchased through STS exhibits, including eleven People's Choice Award winning sculptures. In addition to the People's Choice Award, several monetary artist awards totaling $6,250 are made possible each year through the generosity of our sponsors and the Friends of SculptureTour Salina. Those dollars help with awards, artist stipends, marketing, and even purchase sculptures from time to time. To become a Friend of SculptureTour Salina, please click the "to support" tab up top!
SculptureTour Salina is made possible through private and public sponsorships, grants, marketing investments, in-kind services, and donations. We thank ALL for their dollars, time and talent!
