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!
