In 2012 art came to downtown Decatur in the form of eight indoor and eight outdoor sculptures. The following year the Decatur Sculpture Tour Committee launched the outdoor gallery that consisted of a total of 23 exhibits. Over the years many sponsors have provided financial support and other services to promote a sculpture festival. Many of the past sculptures have become permanent displays in the community. This year’s unveiling festival is Friday, June 14th.
For more information or to make a donation contact the Adams County Community Foundation 260-724-3939 or mail donations to Decatur Sculpture Tour, PO Box 175, Decatur, IN 46733. The committee is utilizing any additional funds to pay the sculptors, as their work is on display for 10 months.
