Sculpture Walk

Take a tour downtown Springfield while hunting down over 30 art sculptures! Public art has proven itself to play a major role in rejuvenating public spaces and local economies. Sculpture Walk Springfield is an initiative aimed at creating such a museum, by displaying quality sculptures in public places in Springfield on an annually rotating schedule. Each collection of sculptures will be in place from April to March of the next year.
