SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - The man who has long overseen the downtown Sioux Falls SculptureWalk is set to retire - though the SculptureWalk itself isn’t going anywhere.

Jim Clark is expected to retire in the spring of 2021 after the new director works with him on the installation of the new pieces of art, according to SculptureWalk board president Regan Smith.

Smith said Clark has placed over 836 sculptures in Downtown Sioux Falls and led the installation of the Arc of Dreams.

“Jim has made an impact locally, regionally and nationally in the art community,” Smith said. “What goes unseen is Jim’s tireless efforts behind the scenes - from picking up trash to all of the operational details like shoveling snow off the Arc’s lights. Without his dedication, SculptureWalk would not be the success it is.”

Applications for a new executive director will start being accepted in January.
