Thanks For VotING for Your Favorite Augusta Sculpture Trail Sculpture!


The sculpture vote poll is now closed, and included online voting and in person paper ballots handed in during the James Brown Birthday Get Down on May 7, 2022.  The winner of the People’s Choice Award will be announced in August, 2022.


The sculptures are on loan to the City of Augusta for two years. Any pieces that are not purchased will be returned to the artists, and 10 NEW sculptures will come to Augusta in January 2023.

The Augusta Sculpture Trail

The Trail features 10 beautiful sculptures by nationally renowned artists on display in downtown Augusta from January 2021 through January 2023. Each month a special event will be held somewhere along the Trail. 

 

Augusta’s Sculpture Trail public art sculptures are placed at intervals that make for a fun and easy outdoor walking trail. Selected locations use City of Augusta sidewalks for access, making them fully accessible for everyone to enjoy. 

 

The digital walking tour produced by Otocast can be accessed from any mobile device and will help visitors learn specifics about each work of art while they explore the Augusta Sculpture Trail. It will include a variety of fun mobile activities for all ages, that will be added over the two year installation time.
