One of St. George’s strengths is its continued support of the arts. I recently attended the Dallas Brass concert at Dixie State University where the visiting emcee made the comment that one sign of a vibrant community is one where the arts are supported and enjoyed. We have benefitted from Southern Utah’s continued efforts to support the arts.
The Art Around the Corner Foundation is a non-profit oraganization dedicated to supporting the arts, enriching the community, and bringing firne arts to the heart of historic St. George. Their signature project is the collection of sculptures displayed outdoors in the historic district of St. George. We have enjoyed walking around downtown (especially in the evening just as the sun is setting) and discovering these different treasures. There are all types of sculptures. Our kids have enjoyed discovering them as well.
If you go to Art Around the Corner website, you can find a map that marks the locations of all the sculptures. You can also find a great list of questions that you can use to engage your children in learning about the sculptures.
We also find that we can combine our walk around downtown with a dinner at one of the locally owned restaurants downtown. The kids love Pizza Factory or Pasta Factory; we love Cappeletti’s and Benjas, but those aren’t your only choices. Walk up main street and over into ancestor square. Find your favorite place in Downtown Historic St. George.
Our team loves Southern Utah and would love to help you with any of your real estate needs. Call our team to answer your questions.
