Last weekend to vote for your favorite sculpture

Eau Claire (WQOW)- The sculpture tour is a downtown Eau Claire staple, but now it’s time to decide which piece we want to stick around forever.

Sculpture Tour Executive Director Julie Pangallo said there are 54 sculptures, 35 of them are up for the People’s Choice Award, and this is the last weekend to vote.

Pangallo said for a sculpture to be eligible it has to cost less than $15,000, or the artist must agree to sell it for that price.

Right now, seven of the permanent sculptures are People’s Choice Award winners that will always have a home downtown.

“Public art has such an important role in our society because budgets are being cut in schools, art programs are being cut, so having public art and make it accessible to everybody regardless of their socioeconomic standing is just critically important, ” Pangallo said.

Pangallo said they hope to announce the winning sculpture in the next few weeks.

If you’re interested in voting there are ballot sheets in downtown Eau Claire near the sculptures, or you can do it online.
