The Sculpture Walk is an exhibit of beautiful outdoor sculptures displayed for one year in Downtown St Joseph, Missouri. The selected sculptures will be displayed June 12, 2024 to May 12, 2025. Artists receive a $750 honorarium per sculpture selected and compete for up to $13,000 in cash prize awards. Each sculpture is for sale to the public. One sculpture is purchased to become a permanent part of St Joseph’s public art collection.
The historic downtown district features unique shops, restaurants, coffee houses, and clubs making it a top daytrip destination in Northwest Missouri. Brochures on the Sculpture Walk are available throughout the downtown and at the St Joseph Convention and Visitors Bureau office. The Sculpture Walk brochure invites guests to vote for their favorite sculpture for the People’s Choice award.
All participating sculptors are invited to the First Walk reception and guided tour, which is always a draw for area media, local government officials, and outdoor art enthusiasts. Sculptors are invited to speak about their sculpture(s) during the First Walk.
This year-long event puts sculpture in front of area art collectors and provides the opportunity to have a sculpture become a permanent part of downtown St Joseph.
Each week, a sculpture is chosen to the Sculpture of the Week in all Allied Arts Council social media.
To make this event possible, the Allied Arts Council partners with the City of St Joseph and the St Joseph Downtown Community Improvement District.
