The Abilene Cultural Affairs Council kicked off the 42nd annual outdoor sculpture exhibition

The Abilene Cultural Affairs Council kicked off the 42nd annual outdoor sculpture exhibition over the weekend, featuring many sculptors from all over the U.S. This year an exhibition inside the Grace museum includes sculptures from Jeffy Brewer, Glory Hartsfield, Anthony Huff and Dwayne Hughes. The Executive director of Abilene Cultural Affairs Council Lynn Barnett says this event highlights Texas artists, "My favorite part is getting to know the new sculpture that are coming in to exhibit, and just the opportunity to see their work and to make that work accessible for Abilenians.”

The council received a $80,000 grant from the Texas Commission of the Arts which makes it possible to light the sculptures and light the “Singing, Ringing Tree” near Frontier Texas.

The sculptures will be displayed along North First Street between Beech and Grape Streets for two years.
