Twenty-one sculptures by artists from across the Eastern United States now have temporary homes in downtown Salisbury, at local colleges, and throughout our community. The 2022 Salisbury Sculpture Show will run from May 13, 2022 to April 2023.
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 Visitor’s Center at 204 East Innes Street where you may pick up a brochure and begin your walking tour of the eleven sculptures within historic downtown Salisbury. Brochures are also available at the Rowan Public Library, Rowan Museum, Waterworks Visual Arts Center, and at local downtown businesses, restaurants, and galleries.
The 2022 Salisbury Sculpture Show is divided into two sections. The first section is our Downtown sculpture show, which has been ongoing for the last fourteen years. The Community section features sculptures throughout the Salisbury city limits, in Salisbury neighborhoods and at local colleges.
In the fall of 2021 the SPAC did a call for applications for neighborhoods to apply to host a sculpture. For the first time three neighborhoods are hosting sculptures in this year’s sculpture show. Featured neighborhoods for 2022: Castlewood, Country Club Hills, and Milford Knolls.
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. Thanks to many sponsor purchases, there are now twenty-four permanent sculptures in Salisbury.
