The votes have been cast, nearly 1,500 to be exact, and the people of the Sioux Empire have once again anointed their new favorite piece of artwork, during the Sioux Falls SculptureWalk's People's Choice Awards for 2023.

Dakota News Now is reporting that local Sioux Falls sculptor, Cameron Stalheim got the nod this year for his bronze sculpture named "Linger."

Stalheim told Dakota News Now, “The City of Sioux Falls is incredibly lucky to have SculptureWalk bringing art out of the gallery and into the streets. I am honored to have my piece, ‘Linger,’ selected for People’s Choice. This is a great motivator for me to pursue my passion and give back to the community. I look forward to continuing my participation with SculptureWalk and making Sioux Falls the city of sculpture.”

Stalheim's "Linger" can be found in front of the downtown Sioux Falls pub Hello Hi located on Phillips Avenue. It will remain there until a new crop of sculptures moves into the downtown area next spring.

Once that happens, "Linger" will be purchased by the city of Sioux Falls and moved to a permanent location somewhere here in the city for people to enjoy well into the future.

Every May through September residents here in the Sioux Empire are invited to cast votes for their favorite downtown Sioux Falls sculpture. The winning piece of artwork is then given the designation of receiving the "People's Choice Award."

At this time, the city of Sioux Falls has 67 different sculptures that line the sidewalks of Phillips Avenue, Main Avenue, and various other locations throughout downtown.

See Some of Sioux Falls' Beautiful Murals [PHOTOS]

I was in Canton, SD, and I happened upon a new mural.

It was really cool and that got me thinking that I know of a few murals in Sioux Falls, but I bet there's more than I realize. So, I put it out on social media for the people of Sioux Falls to tell me where all the murals are!

A few of them I had never seen, or never even been to that part of town, and a few of them, I drive by all the time and never noticed!

I know a few businesses have murals inside their establishments, but I decided to keep it to murals that are totally open for the public to see. No need to be 21!

So, here we go! Let's check out some of Sioux Falls' murals.
Did I miss one? Let me know!
