City selects nine new sculptures for 2017-18 tour

The City has contracted with eight artists to participate in its Sculpture Tour, a juried year-long outdoor exhibit in the Georgetown Cultural District.

The City’s Arts and Culture Board selected the nine 2017-18 Sculpture Tour pieces from 41 pieces submitted for consideration by 21 artists. Sculptures will be installed in early November and will remain on display through October 2018.

The previous group of Sculpture Tour works will be removed by artists by Nov. 1 to make space for the new pieces.

Five of the works will be installed on Main Street, and four will be located outside the Ninth Street entrance of the Georgetown Public Library at 402 W. Eighth St.

Artists along with the City’s Parks and Recreation Department staff will install each piece.

All nine sculptures’ artists will receive a cash prize based on judging that will take place in November by the Arts and Culture Board.

Sculpture Tour artists and their selected works for the next twelve months are:
Cindy Debold, “Imagination”
Peter Mangan, “Blood Brother”
Sun McColgin, “Thor’s Hammer” and “Tanzanian Torpedo”
Mary Morse, “Kite”
Dan Pogue, “Mystic Flight”
Jay Schaan, “Ladder Man”
Dave Speer, “Barn Martian”
Anthony St. James, “Freshwater Cowgirl”
