Northeast Sculpture Tour - Click here for more info
In an effort to bring more art to the Arts District, Andrew MacGuffie, John Kremer & Jennifer Young created the new NE Sculpture Tour. The focus of the sculpture tour is to connect the dots between Northeast’s various studio buildings, artists, & local business owners.
They are partnering with local restaurants & businesses to foster a larger sense of community within the Arts District. In addition to California Building, Casket Arts Building's Franconia in the City mini sculpture park, & Northrup King Building, the NE Sculpture Tour will also be featuring sculptures at the Modern Cafe, Sip Coffebar, The Anchor, & Shuga Records.
Art in the form of Sculpture will become a visable year round connector in the Arts District.
There will be maps available with sculpture locations which can be viewed as a walking or biking tour.
