Sculpture Tour Eau Claire is FREE PUBLIC ART!
Each year, we create an ongoing public art exhibit by installing original outdoor sculptures along the public streets of downtown Eau Claire. These pieces are exhibited for 11 months, and artists are paid a stipend for the use of their work. All sculpture is offered for sale. Sculpture Tour EC has grown to over 50 sculptures, making it the 2nd largest tour of this type in the nation.
This is made possible through sponsorships by area businesses and private supporters, as well as donations from the public and thousands of volunteer hours. Sculpture Tour EC is a 501c3 non-profit organization, with the goal of enhancing the quality of life in Eau Claire by using the arts to—
- Promote Tourism
- Encourage Active Lifestyles
- Engage our Residents and Guests
- Spur Economic Development
- Foster Art Education and Lifelong Learning
- Encourage Social Inclusion
- Build Community Pride
- Unify our Community
