Sioux Falls Scuplture Walk, 8/06/2016

While at the Visitor Center at Falls Park, we picked up a brochure about the Sioux Falls Sculpture Walk. This is the 12th annual event and features 55 sculptures. Artists from around the world participate with the public voting for their favorite. The sculpture that receives the most votes is purchased and placed on permanent display in Sioux Falls. Most of the sculptures can be seen on both sides of Phillips Avenue in the downtown area of the city. The brochure provides a map of the location of all of the sculptures. 

At first I don't think John (or our doggy, Sadie) were too excited about this urban hike, but he started seeing sculptures that he really liked and we both ended up having fun with this. Also, it provided us with the opportunity to see some of the downtown area. If you're interested, here are some of the sculptures we liked or thought were unique (in no particular order).
