Art Around the Corner Launches 20th Anniversary Celebration

Community invited to installation events

ST. GEORGE — The Art Around the Corner Foundation (AACF) is gearing up for its 20th anniversary, with a series of events prior to the installation of the 2024 Outdoor Sculpture Galleries in St. George.

For the past two decades, the nonprofit, all-volunteer AACF has partnered with the City of St. George to curate and display world-class public art in Historic Downtown, and at St. George Regional Hospital. Thanks to AACF’s unique “art on loan” program, nationally renowned sculptors and 3D artists bring their works to St. George for display for one year. The artwork is then available for residents and visitors to enjoy, free of charge.

“Thanks to the Art Around the Corner Foundation, the quality of life in St. George has been greatly enriched for the past 20 years,” said St. George Mayor Michele Randall. “The beautiful sculptures that AACF installs each year provide wonderful opportunities for our community to interact with the art, and with each other. We are truly grateful for the efforts of our hard-working volunteers.”

This year’s installation – slated for Saturday morning, April 6 – will be the culmination of weeks of special events. During the month of February, Art Around the Corner is once again providing a daily educational program for 4th-grade students in Washington County. The initiative sees students visiting The Electric Theater for a presentation on the creation of public art and screenings of videos featuring artists describing their artwork, followed by walking tours of the current Outdoor Sculpture Gallery in Historic Town Square.

In March, AACF board members will be arranging for the removal of the current sculpture collection, and coordinating the details for the Artists Social, to be held on Friday evening, April 5, at the Hilton Garden Inn. The public is invited to attend this festive gathering, during which several artists, AACF board members and city dignitaries will share details of the organization’s history, and highlight its many successes – including over $1,000,000 in sales and leases of artwork. Tickets for the Social are $35 and are available at

On Saturday morning at 10 a.m., following the installation of the 2024 show, the community is again invited to meet and mingle with the artists at a celebration in Town Square. Drinks, light refreshments and entertainment will be provided free of charge.

“We’re so excited to invite the St. George community to join us in celebrating our 20th anniversary, and the talented, generous artists who’ve made it all possible,” noted Art Around the Corner Foundation Chair Heather Atkin. “Many residents wonder who creates the amazing artwork that they see around downtown. This year everyone will have the chance to meet and thank our creative partners for making life in St. George even brighter.”
