Artists gathered and talked about their work and their creations over the past years last Thursday at this year’s downtown sculpture tour.

This year, more than 30 artists were featured in this tour for the public to meet. Every year, new sculptors are placed around the Eau Claire area for the public to experience art in their everyday lives.

During the event, the public could purchase raffle tickets in hopes of winning the local sculpture titled “Claire, the Kangaroo,” sculpted by local artists Aiden Demarais and Tim James, who created the piece out of old spoons.

The majority of the sculptures are made with recycled materials and a few artists, such as artist Dale Lewis, promotes this as well. Lewis included his work in his logo “Imagine, Create, Recycle.”

After the event was over, the artists gathered in a private reception to celebrate their work. Many pieces are still awaiting plaques with the artist and the title.
