Sculpture Tour Eau Claire

The Sculpture Tour Eau Claire brings a new set of sculptures to Eau Claire every year, with dozens lining Water Street, Barstow Street, and other locations downtown. The tour generally runs year-round and favorite sculptures are purchased by the city or local businesses to stay here in town.

Banbury Art Crawl

Every year the Banbury Art Crawl features scores of local artists who gather in the old tire factory to show off their goods. The artisans bring everything from paintings and sculptures to furniture and home goods. Usually the event takes place in February.
