Suwanee is launching a fund-raising campaign in an effort to display outdoor sculptures year-round throughout the downtown district.
The Suwanee SculpTour, modeled after a program in Columbus, will feature up to 25 sculptures of varying types, styles and materials. They will be on loan to the city and, officials hope, will change each year.
“By exhibiting loaned pieces, the SculpTour will make a significant and widespread impact through public art in a single stroke,” said Denise Brinson, director of economic and community development.
Public art initiatives such as SculpTour should bring additional visitors to downtown Suwanee and stimulate creativity in the workplace and schools, Brinson noted.
No city funds will be used to implement SculpTour. It hinges on support from businesses and individuals, officials said.
