City selects nine new sculptures for 2017-2018 Sculpture Tour

The City of Georgetown has contracted with eight artists to participate in its Sculpture Tour, a juried year-long outdoor exhibit in the bustling Georgetown Cultural District. The previous group of  Sculpture Tour works will all be removed by the artists no later than Nov. 1 to make space for the new pieces.

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”

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

Five of the works will be installed on Main Street, and four will be located outside the Ninth Street entrance to the Georgetown Public Library. Installations will be done by the artists working with the staff of the City’s Parks and Recreation Department. Click here to view a Sculpture Tour Map.
