3rd annual sculpture tour kicks off Tuesday in Eau Claire


Eau Claire (WQOW) - The finishing touches were put on Eau Claire's sculpture tour today, now all 30 pieces have been installed and are ready for you to check out.

The 3rd annual sculpture tour will look a little different this year. Due to construction on South Barstow, scheduled for later this summer, some artwork has made its way to Water Street. There are also pieces located along North Barstow and on the Mayo hospital campus. Local, national, and even international artists are featured in this year's tour.

"We see them as a great conversation piece, and a destination piece for people to come into these areas, see the sculptures, and also start exploring the very unique shops and explore the community a little bit more," said James Hanke

Within the next two weeks brochures will be available, and you're asked to vote for your favorite sculpture. When the voting ends, the winning sculpture is honored with the people's choice award. That sculpture is then bought by tour's board of directors and donated to the city.
