This year, a third of the sculptures to be featured in the tour were created by local artists, a significant increase since the tour’s inception in 2011.

Notice something missing in downtown Eau Claire?  This morning in the wee hours, workers were hustling to take down last year’s Sculpture Tour installations; and according to Program Director Julie Pangallo, they did it in record time.  Stay tuned over the next several weeks as new art is placed around downtown.  The official Installation Day is May 9, but you might see a dinosaur stomping around near a downtown parking garage as early as Monday.

This year, a third of the sculptures to be featured in the tour were created by local artists, a significant increase since the tour’s inception in 2011. “I’m so excited because we haven’t sacrificed quality to do that,” Pangallo said. “We have so much talent here in Eau Claire and in the Chippewa Valley.”

“There’s some really neat pieces we have, that I think people are going to be really impressed with the variety,” she said.
