Twenty-three sculptures by artists from across the Eastern United States now have temporary homes in downtown Salisbury, at local colleges, and around Rowan County. The 2018 Salisbury Sculpture Show runs from April through January 31, 2019.
Carefully selected from an open application process, the works represent a wide range of sculptural styles and materials. Each sculpture is placed to best complement the piece and its setting. The first stop on your tour is the Visitors’ Center at 204 East Innes Street where you may pick up a brochure and begin your walking tour of the sixteen new sculptures within historic downtown Salisbury. Brochures are also available at Rowan Library, Rowan Museum, Waterworks Visual Arts Center and at local restaurants and galleries.
The 2018 Salisbury Sculpture Show is divided into three sections. Our downtown sculpture show has been ongoing for the last ten years. Our local colleges started featuring sculptures six years ago, and this is the first year of “Arts & Agriculture” which is based in rural locations throughout Rowan County, in partnership with the Rowan County Tourism Development Authority.
On your way in or out of town, take note of “Salisbury Foursome” at I-85 Exit 76, the permanent colorful 4-piece sculpture installed in each quadrant of the interchange.
