The Art Around the Corner Foundation here in St. George is “dedicated to supporting the arts, enhancing the community’s lifestyle through art; and, displaying fine art on nearly every street corner in historic downtown St. George.” This organization – which has changed names a few times since its formation in 1988 – was a driving force in restoring the long-abandoned St. George Opera House to its former glory, and building the St. George Art Museum and Social Hall in the Pioneer Center for the Arts complex on the corner of Main Street and 200 North.
However, the organization’s signature project is the Art Around the Corner Outdoor Sculpture Exhibit, including numerous significant works created by talented local and nationally recognized artists, soon to be on display in 2018. If you think you’ve already seen this little piece of St. George, think again because new works are installed annually while many of last year’s pieces are available for lease or purchase. Soon after the calendar turns over to 2018, new pieces will be put on display on Town Square (immediately next door to the St. George Tabernacle) or will dot the landscape on the grounds of Pioneer Center for the Arts; in front of local banks on Tabernacle Street or can be viewed in a leisurely self-guided stroll along Main Street. Some of these amazing artworks are a nod to our pioneer heritage while others are reminiscent of childhood or are just pleasingly whimsical. Many are modern and open to interpretation, but each is uniquely beautiful and a pleasure to behold in any weather.
