CityArt, a joint initiative of Twin Rivers Council for the Arts and the City Center Partnership, announced the 2021 CityArt Walking Sculpture Tour Awards this evening at Greater Mankato Growth’s Business Awards and Hall of Fame event.
This year’s Best of Show honors go to People’s Choice – Jefferson Davis’s Cover Up; Best in Show Bronze – Kimber Fieberger’s No Time to Say Hello, Goodbye and Best in Show Other Materials – Dale Lewis’s Straight to the Heart. The Jurors’ Purchase Award winning sculpture is Fine Feathered Friends by artists Gary and Tonnie Hovie & Jim Perrine.
The coveted Jurors’ Purchase Award sculpture will be purchased by the CityArt and installed permanently in the City Center. Each year, the purchased sculpture is installed in either Mankato or North Mankato on an established rotating basis. This year’s winner, Fine Feathered Friends, will be installed on Belgrade Avenue in North Mankato’s City Center.
