First of Many in Downtown Seagrove!

Seagrove, NC has it’s first sculpture located at the corner of Hwy 705 and Main St on the property of Seagrove Stoneware. “Balancing Time II”  by sculptor Ed Walker is the first of several temporary sculpture installations planned for the downtown area.

“We are doing this as a way to develop arts and tourism in Seagrove,” Ed Walker said. “We have such a great community of artists up and down this road and we need to support all of them.

“2-3 more sculptures are planned for the downtown area,” Melissa Walker said. “We want to try to do a variety of styles in order to appeal to folks in town and those who visit. The community is really excited about it.”

This is an extension of a sculpture park being constructed at the foundry on Maple Springs Road in Seagrove.

“There is still a lot of work to do to landscape the area, put in a walking path and set out large scale outdoor sculptures,” Walker said. “We are planning for 15-20 sculptures along a walking path around a 1 ½-acre pond and we have 45 acres to expand later. We put a call out to other sculptors and already have 11 commitments.
