South Dakota Arts & Sculpture Trail

Discover public art and sculptures all around South Dakota

The South Dakota Arts & Sculpture Trail is more than statues on a path. It’s a free public art museum that stretches across the entire state, offering visitors and residents the chance to experience hundreds of one-of-a-kind pieces as well as a variety of unique communities that help bring the art to life.

Experience sunrise at Mount Rushmore National Memorial and the enormity of Crazy Horse Memorial. Bask in the majesty of Dignity as you take in a view of the Missouri River near Chamberlain. Get up close and personal with presidents in Rapid City, reflect on military sacrifice along Capitol Lake in Pierre, or take in one-of-a-kind experiences in Sioux Falls, Watertown, Yankton, Vermillion, and other places that are part of the arts scene in South Dakota. No matter what your expectations are, we’re confident you’ll be pleasantly surprised and enamored with what you find along the way.

True art has no limits. The same applies to the South Dakota Arts & Sculpture Trail. Works can be found along main streets in communities of every size, in rural parks, along riverfronts, or carved into literal mountains. No matter where you are in South Dakota, you’ll find that there’s a piece of art not far away.
