Salisbury Sculpture Show spreads art across city

Published 12:01 am Sunday, May 31, 2015

The 2015 Salisbury Sculpture Show is in full swing across the city.

Now in its seventh year, the show features 19 sculptures by artists from five states. The sculptures are located in the downtown area and at each of the city’s four institutions of higher learning: Livingstone College, Catawba College, Rowan-Cabarrus Community College and Hood Theological Seminary.

The event is organized by the Salisbury Public Art Committee, and sculptures are selected through an application process. The show is made possible by several organizations and businesses and by two key grants from the Rowan Arts Council and the Salisbury Community  Foundation.

Several artists who have pieces in this year’s show have had their art showcased in previous years.

Brochures with a map, picture and brief description of each sculpture can be picked up at the visitor’s center at 204 East Innes Street, the Rowan Museum or the Rowan Public Library.
