Mankato Free Press (May 14, 2021) — Several activities are planned to celebrate the CityArt Walking Sculpture Tour’s 10th anniversary May 22.
The celebration is slated on a day when 31 sculptures will be installed at various sites in Mankato and North Mankato. The works, valued at a total of more than $300,000, were created by sculptors from throughout the country.
The activities are designed to engage community members and visitors of all ages.
A coloring book featuring CityArt’s People’s Choice winning sculptures from the past 10 years will be distributed by City Center restaurants and businesses. Local libraries are sponsoring a bookmark design contest, and Mankato Brewery is marketing custom six-packs featuring photos of award-winning sculptures.
Mankato Area Foundation is this year’s presenting sponsor of the exhibition that showcases original works of art in a variety of styles, scales and mediums.
