Ceca Cooper has a passion and an appreciation for art and the sculptures but she has to wait one more day before she can see the new ones.
"Yeah, I was actually hoping they were in place today that's why we came downtown. We usually walk around McKennan Park," Cooper said.
Like many people she's looking forward to when these empty pedestals will have a purpose.
"The sculpture walk has been an incredible asset to the Sioux Falls community and to the University of Sioux Falls. We got interested a few years ago when we saw basically the influx of people downtown.
Ceca Cooper is an Associate Professor of Art at University of Sioux Falls.
"Wonderful for our students. We get sculptures every year so a student who is there for 4 years will have a whole group of sculptures to go through," Cooper said.
"It's a very busy time, they took the 2013 sculptures down in the middle of April and now with the sculptures gone people are wondering when are the sculptures coming back?" Jim Clark said.
Clark is one of the organizers behind this event.
"Making sure we have the best program in the country, the artists tell us that. I don't know if they are just saying that because they know we want to hear that but I think they are being truthful but we always have to stay on top of our game. It does add more culture to the community and it helps to beautify downtown. Downtown is a pretty cool place anyway and it's quality of life and economic development for the people that live here,” Clark said.
They will be adding 55 sculptures throughout the community.
"Very exciting time though because when the artist submit their entries all we see from the entries are the photos and sketches and now we get to see the real thing," Clark said.
