Sculpture Trail lands in Downtown Clayton

Eye of the Hurricane Sculpture Eye of the Hurricane Sculpture in Downtown Clayton.

If you have walked or driven around Downtown Clayton these past few months you have probably noticed the different art sculptures located around town. The sculptures are part of the first-ever Downtown Clayton Sculpture Trail, a project The Clayton Public Art Advisory Board with the support of the Clayton Town Council has established.

Balancing Spheres sculpture Balancing Spheres Sculpture in Downtown Clayton.

These sculptures were created by artists from across the state and put up to visually enhance the downtown area. There are a total of seven pieces on display and they will continue to be up for a year, with the intention to get different submissions next spring to take their place.

A unique detail to this trail is that as you are walking around taking a closer look at these works of art you can use your phone to scan the code on the plaques to watch the individual artists videos and learn more about the sculpture that you are standing right in front of! This interactive detail makes it feel like the artists are taking the tour with you and giving you first-hand details.

With works of art titled things like Balancing Spheres, Geyser, and Eye of the Hurricane (my personal favorite), the Downtown Clayton Sculpture Trail is worth taking some time to enjoy. For more details about the Sculpture Trail visit www.townofclaytonnc.org.

While you are admiring the sculptures around town be sure to look around and get the full small town experience. There are plenty of good restaurants, shops, a brewery, and festivals. For more about Downtown Clayton and lists of things to do while visiting head to www.visitclayton.org.
