NORTH MANKATO —
“We need some generous benefactor to step forward,” he said.
The two-year-old sculpture walk brings a new round of pieces to downtown Mankato and North Mankato with only the winner of the “people’s choice” voting guaranteed a permanent home in the city. The rest are packed up and returned to their creators — artists from around the nation — to make room for the ensuing year’s pieces.
But each year, some sculptures have caught the fancy of local residents who have purchased them rather than letting them leave town following their 10-month visit.
The current CityArt sculptures are scheduled to be taken down in the next two months, with the installation of the next round on May 18.
