2019 Artist Application


Located between two of the world’s largest and most famous sculptures, Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse, Hill City is the logical spot for the Sculpture in the Hills Art Show & Sale. The show is juried, which means that quality for buyers is guaranteed. Sculpture in the Hills also is intimate, with a maximum of 25 artists per year, showing together under one tent just off Main Street—between the famous Alpine Inn and Granite Sports.

Free to the public on Saturday and Sunday- it’s your chance to meet and talk with the artists, see world-class sculpture, and have a great time!
