>> guest: they're all over downtown. we just received a grant from jordan valley park from the community foundation of the ozarks. so this week we put up four permanent sculptures. we're going to have a party this saturday with music and food to celebrate those. >> kelly: that sounds great. >> tom: when you say sculpture, of course, that brings all different kinds of things to mind. what sort of sculptures are going to be out there? >> guest: we try to have an extremely diverse group of sculptures. some are abstract. some are realistic. we try to have something for everyone. you'll have to look for yourself. >> kelly: do people submit to you? is that how you find the sculptures? >> guest: every year, we do a call to artist. we're getting ready to release the call to artist for next year. we get submissions from all over the world, africa, france. >> tom: nice. >> guest: we have sculptures internationally right now. there's shipping issues coming from france that are expensive. but they're from all over the country. >> tom: is this something that is guided. or do you give people -- how does this work? >> guest: we have a website www.sculpturewalkspringfiel... . there's a map on there that shows where all of the pieces are. where all parking is downtown. but we also have various locations around town. and most downtown locations have their brochure with maps in there. and we do tours. >> tom: self-guided? >> guest: yeah. they can call me. and we give tours. >> kelly: that's a good way not to miss any of them. when you say they're downtown, is it the square? how do you find all of them. so that's a good way to find them. >> guest: yeah, we try not to tell you where to go and find them. because everyone is starting at a different spot. >> kelly: ah! >> guest: we don't have a specific route. we want you to create your own destination. >> tom: does it also change as far as do you move these works of art around? >> guest: yeah, every year -- they're for sale. so unless someone -- >> tom: ah! >> guest: they're for sale. unless someone buys them, the pieces go back to the artist. we're just borrowing sculptures from the artist for a year. we give the artist a $1,000 stipe enned, and they go back to the artist. >> kelly: they're for sale, tom! >> tom: so it is an art galley in the open! >> guest: and you can is say what you want and wear what you want and take your friends. >> kelly: i'm sure this is an eclectic bunch of pieces. are they different sizes? >> guest: they're different sizes. our biggest one is 19 feet tall. we have one that is just two or three feet tall this year. they're different sizes, different mediums. the only thing we ask is that they can stay inside and be in the weather for ten months at a time. >> kelly: right. >> tom: how did 1 million cups help you with this mission, with making this possible? >> guest: well, we went to 1 million cups because we were looking for help on how to get the word out. last year, was our first year that we took all of the sculptures down. and we had people calling us, and saying, someone stole the ballerina sculpture. but we're trying to get the word out that this is for springfield. this is for you. and we want everyone to go see it. the they helped us find ways to try to find the way to get the word out to springfield to come see them. when they come down the end of february, come the first week of may, you'll have new sculptures to look at. >> kelly: have you sold any? >> guest: not so far. >> kelly: i'm sure they're pricey, because they're one of a kind, right? >> guest: they're all different prices. the ones that are up this year, we've had quite a few requests on pricing. so i suspect that we'll sell a few this year. last year was our first year. >> tom: yeah. >> guest: and so we're really getting a lot of attention now. >> kelly: give the details one more time. >> kelly: for the event. >> guest: yes, saturday, we are having an event from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at jordan valley park. it is to celebrate the collective impact grant that we got with the ozark green ways, the parks, and the arts council. and we're going to celebrate the new sculptures and have food and music. there's going to be live music. and it will be fun. >> tom: how can people get more information about what you do? >> guest: we can go to www.sculpturewalkspringfiel... . >> kelly: what time does the event start? >> 10:00 a.m. >> kelly: all right. very good! >> tom: sounds like fun. thanks for being with us. >> guest: thank you. >> kelly: up next, it's "speaking legal" with will worsham.
