Sculpture on Main

Sculpture on Main is a public art program of outdoor three-dimensional artwork placed in highly visible and accessible places in Marble Falls. The purpose is to promote Marble Falls as a fine art destination by bringing gallery and museum art outdoors for everyone to enjoy. The program hopes to encourage tourism and art education by bringing people to the downtown area. This sculpture event was the first of its kind in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. Large outdoor sculptures were placed in the Historic Main Street area of Marble Falls. Sculptures from several countries are on loan and are displayed in landscaped areas along Main Street. www.sculpturemftx.com
