About SculptureWalk

The sculptures, which are owned by the artists, are on loan to the exhibit for one year. We encourage you to cast a vote for your favorite sculpture through paper ballot or by voting online. Avera McKennan will purchase the sculpture that receives the most votes and add it to our permanent art collection.

A Proud Tradition

As we head into our sixth year, the Avera McKennan SculptureWalk continues to recognize the vital role art plays in healing the whole person - mind, body and spirit. For this reason, we fill our environments with various types of artwork, such as: sculpture, paintings, hand-blown glass and photography.

As host of the first indoor SculptureWalk in the city of Sioux Falls, we kindly welcome you and hope you enjoy these beautiful works of art.
