Do you like art? Do you like art that’s also free to enjoy? How about art that’s free to view and available all year round and can be seen from the comfort of your car or on a leisurely stroll?
Yep. We’ve got that. It’s called Sculpture Walk Springfield.
Sculpture Walk Springfield is a collection of sculptures placed throughout Springfield that you can visit for FREE. Their website touts it as “A museum without walls”. Doesn’t that sound magical?
To add to the magic, you can download an app (here) that will play recordings from the artist, telling you all about their sculpture, the inspiration that led to the creation, and more!
Some absolutely fantastic people teamed up with beautifully generous people (which you could be one of by clicking here) with the mission “to enhance the quality of life and to promote economic vitality through the artistic transformation of Springfield with outdoor sculpture.” How cool is that?!
This magnificent project was first graced our streets in 2016 and is still going strong.
The sculptures, of which there are currently over 30, are rotated out for new ones periodically so there’s almost always something new to see.
Some sculptures are permanent. Other sculptures take the way of the McDonald’s McRib and will only be around for a limited time.
You can find the sculptures all throughout Springfield.
You can find a map of the current sculptures here.
They currently have seemed to congirate mostly in the center of Springfield with a few deciding to be rebels and place themselves scattered throughout the town, further away from the crowds.
So if you actually want to walk to view the Sculpture Walk Springfield, I would suggest heading downtown. However, if you’d rather just view them from the cushy, air conditioned, comfort of your vehicle, the world is your oyster. Well, at least Springfield is your oyster.
Sculptures are on display all year round. The current collection will be available to view from now until Spring 2021.
So get out there, get some sunshine, and get your art peepin on!
