Spokane’s official Sculpture Walk has been extended, by City Council resolution, westward from the Monroe Street Bridge to the Sandifur Bridge on the Centennial Trail, along the new Kendall Yards development.
Over the next 20 to 30 years, the City of Spokane Arts Commission intends to add a number of “major works of art” along this new extension.
You didn’t know we already had a Sculpture Walk? We do, and quite an extensive one at that.
The existing Sculpture Walk, designated in 1988, already has 22 sculptures. It extends from the Washington State University branch campus at Riverpoint, through Riverfront Park to the Monroe Street Bridge, encompassing such familiar Spokane art landmarks as the Big Red Wagon, the trash-eating goat and the steel Bloomsday runners.
Those are just the most visible highlights. The Sculpture Walk includes many other statues, installations and fountains from artists including George Tsutakawa, Harold Balazs, Ken Spieringand David Govedare.
