2017 Decatur Sculpture Tour

On June 9, the Decatur Sculpture Tour Committee hosted its 6th annual tour with 27 original sculptures created by 25 artists from nine states and the United Kingdom. These sculptures will be on display through April 2018. In addition, a number sculptures that have been purchased, donated or inspired by the DST are on display in the community including Riverside Sculpture Park.
