Sculptures hit the streets in area cities

Sculptures hit the streets in area cities

Journal Gazette

Decatur’s fifth annual Sculpture Tour is underway in Adams County, about 20 miles south of Fort Wayne. It is a fitting site for a sculpture exhibit: Decatur is the birthplace and boyhood home of David Smith, widely regarded as one of the greatest sculptors of the 20th century. Another noted sculptor, Ralph Hurst, also was a Decatur native.

Thirty works of art are now on display on Second Street in the downtown district. Walking tour maps are available.

Decatur has bigger plans for its public art program. One of the near-term projects included in the successful Road to One Million Regional Cities proposal is a nature preserve and greenway that would include designated spaces for public art. The plan is to extend the city’s sculpture tour to the new development.

Another public art exhibit is on display in Auburn, where Sculptures on the Square III features 15 works. “The Magic of Metal” is one of the state’s Bicentennial Legacy Projects, sponsored by the Auburn Arts Commission. It celebrates the significance of metal in the county and state – a fitting theme in a community known for its contributions to the early automobile industry.
