Celebrating the arts through sculpture has become the trademark of Sculpture in the South. For more than twelve years, the Sculpture in the South Show and Sale has received recognition as one of South Carolina’s premier outdoor arts events and is fast being hailed nationally. Held in beautiful Azalea Park, this event is fueled with tradition and layered with exceptional world-class sculpture.

This is a one-of-a-kind event offering collectors and first time art enthusiasts a chance to mingle and chat with thirty-five leading fine art sculptors, representing a wide range of original artworks. All artwork is available for purchase with proceeds benefiting Summerville’s Permanent Public Sculpture Program. We are pleased that 20 pieces of bronze sculpture have been purchased and installed since 1999 through the efforts of this organization.
