Cam Collier, grants committee member of the Adams County Community Foundation, has announced that a grant check was recently awarded to the Decatur Sculpture Walk Committee to help provide funding to help support the first outside art gallery in Decatur.
Sculptures from various artist— eight outside and four inside businesses along the route — will be featured on Second St., from Jefferson to Monroe St., and at First Merchants on First Street. The artists will be available for questions and comments near their original artworks at 6 p.m. on Thursday, August 23, after introductions.
The public is invited to participate in another event on the same day, the Kekionga Festival Taste of Decatur on the Courthouse Square from 4-8 p.m., and to see the sculptures unveiled.
Mayor John Schultz said he encourages people of all ages to attend the event as this is surely something original and unique for this area.
