Work On Display In Unique Exhibition

The work of artists from around the country and around the world, including Betty Branch of Roanoke meet on just a few streets in South Dakota as part of the nationally recognized “SculptureWalk.”

SculptureWalk displays original outdoor sculptures in downtown Sioux Falls, SD and is proud to include Branch’s work among its 2012 selections.

Bethy Branch received her Master of Arts from Hollins College and her award winning art has been widely exhibited in numerous private, corporate, university, and museum collections. Branch has also been featured in the Sculpture Review, a National Sculpture Society publication.

“‘SculptureWalk’ gives us an opportunity to give even more exposure to artists and their work in an environment that engages and educates on a daily basis,” says Jim Clark, SculptureWalk Director. “With more than 300,000 people visiting each year, this artwork receives an international audience.”

Artists place their sculptures in the program for one year. Sculptors may win one or more of the 14 awards in the Best of Show, People’s Choice voting and the random drawings. Awards total $15,000.
