The Healing Power of Art

SculptureWalk at Avera McKennan Hospital & University Health Center will take you on more than a mile of some of the most fascinating, unique pieces you've ever seen. As part of this year-long display, you'll find your spirit to be rejuvenated with the thought-provoking pieces of original, hand-crafted work. Your senses will be awakened with vibrant colors and hues. Your emotions will take over as you walk the hallways and spaces throughout the Avera McKennan campus.

About SculptureWalk

The sculptures, which are owned by the artists, are on loan to the exhibit. We invite you to cast a vote for your favorite sculpture through paper ballot or by voting online. Avera McKennan will then purchase the sculpture that captures the most votes and add it to our permanent art collection.

All sculptures are available for purchase. If you are interested, please contact SculptureWalk at (605) 339-8359.

A Proud Tradition

As we head into our fifth year, the Avera McKennan SculptureWalk continues our proud tradition of recognizing the role the arts plays in healing the whole person—body, mind and spirit. We fill our environments with not only sculpture but also with paintings, photography, hand-blown glass, drawings and music.

As host of the first indoor SculptureWalk in the city of Sioux Falls, we welcome you and hope you enjoy these fantastic works of art.
