As a traveler to a new place, don’t you love to stroll the streets of the community to get a feel of what it is like? St. George is a community that has a love for the arts that roots back to the early settlers of this area and a city that loves to share the many things this wonderful community has right downtown.
The Art Around the Corner Foundation has helped bring the fine arts to the streets and to the heart of downtown St. George. This foundation has helped enrich the community by bringing in collections of sculptures by nationally renowned artists.
The city has accumulated a variety of different sculpture pieces that have been placed through the Historic District to be on display for the community and for the many who come here to visit. They have a permanent sculpture collection along with a temporary exhibit that changes annually with new pieces. The temporary exhibit is not only on display for the year, but the sculptures in this exhibit are also for sale. It is a great way to enjoy our city and enjoy your love of the arts.
St. George has a little bit of something for everyone to nurture or gain their appreciation for the arts. You can take in as much or as little as you would like right in the heart of the city. You can visit and tour the following in the downtown area:
