Huntsville launches 'Spaces' community-wide sculpture tour

Huntsville launched SPACES, a community-wide sculpture tour, today. 24 outdoor sculptures will be placed around town beginning today. They will all be installed by December 2nd.

Created by artists from as far away as upstate New York, the pieces will be located around the Courthouse Square, outside the Huntsville Museum of Art and Von Braun Center.

Others will be on the campuses of Alabama A&M University and the University of Alabama in Huntsville, as well as Lowe Mill Arts & Entertainment on Seminole Drive.

The nonprofit Arts Council Inc. organized a sculpture tour called "SPACES" to teach people about the sculptures and the artists who created them.


Private supporters have donated about $50,000 to exhibit the sculptures through September 2012. Each artist is being paid a $1,000 honorarium for loaning their work.

There will be docent-led walking tours, cell phone and GPS-guided tours and even a "People's Choice Award" to see which sculpture resonates most with the public.
