Our 1st installation of the Baytown Sculpture Trail has been in place for a few months and it is a huge success!
More people are visiting the Downtown Arts District; drawn in to see the sculptures and in turn, businesses in the area are reporting more foot traffic and a rise in sales. Visitors have been very impressed by the outstanding quality of the sculptures and are thoroughly enjoying them. It is heartwarming to see the response!
The sculptures were chosen from an international juried art call and the 20 pieces are by artists from Texas, New York, California, South Dakota, Minnesota, Colorado, South Carolina, Idaho, and British Columbia, Canada. We are honored that they entrusted their beautiful works of art to the ACE District for one year.
The art is a mixture of figurative and abstract, all completed with amazing skill and details. This free art exhibit allows the public to assist artists and Baytonians by voting for the People's Choice. The winning sculpture will find a permanent home in Baytown and help to beautify our city and the artists benefit from the sale. In fact, all of the art is for sale or lease.

It has been our pleasure to partner with the City of Baytown, the former Director of Sculpture Walk Sioux Falls, and an advisory team of artists, businesses and volunteers, to bring this to fruition.
In a few short months, we will be sending out a call for artists so that we can bring a fresh new exhibit to Baytown in March of 2023.If you would like to be a part of this program in any way, please contact us.
We hope that you will visit the Sculpture Trail and spread the word. We are here to stay!!
