Sculpture Walk Springfield

Board Opportunity

Sculpture Walk Springfield (SWS) is a privately funded grass roots organization dedicated to encourage the artistic transformation of Springfield through outdoor sculpture, thus enhancing quality of life and promoting economic vitality. Founded in 2014, the organization presents sculptures in the downtown and adjacent Jordan Valley Park on an annual rotating basis. The vision is to create a museum without walls with access to all. The sculptures, on loan from the artists, are on display for 10 months and then replaced with a new collection each April. All sculptures are for sale. The current third year collection consists of 28 sculptures which are submitted by 20 individual sculptors from 8 states.

Believing that collaboration is critical, SWS has worked closely with the City of Springfield, the CFO, the Springfield Regional Arts Council and Missouri State University. SWS has experienced acceptance by the citizens of Springfield as well the artistic community. Walking tours of the sculptures are offered by the staff and an educational program on SWS and public art is presented to all public school seventh graders. Financial support from the community is essential for the continuing existence and growth of this endeavor.

Requirements: Monthly board meeting. We request all board member join a committee and raise or donate at least $2,000 annually.
