“Photo op of over 40 quirky sculptures”

Porter Sculpture Park is located just off Interstate 90 in Montrose, South Dakota (about 25 miles west of Sioux Falls, on the eastern edge of McCook County). It is on the South Dakota Drift Prairie. Many of the sculptures, in the style of industrial art, were made with scrap metal, old farm equipment, or railroad tie plates. The largest sculpture in the park is a 60-foot-tall (18 m) bull head. This sculpture took three years to build, weighs 25 tons, and is equal in size to the heads of Mt. Rushmore. Everyone will enjoy the porter Sculpture Park - people who love art and entertainment and those that don't! * Over 40 sculptures * A great place to walk your dog * Kids 12 and under free! * 60 foot Bull’s Head Sculpture * Take a walk inside the Bull’s Head * As seen on PBS, CBS – Midwest and International TV * Handicapped accessible with courtesy golf cart * Easy access off I-90 – RV’s welcome * Guided tours with sculptor included * Sculptures also on display at 13th and Phillips Downtown Sioux Falls

Arrived on a gorgeous day September 28th. As an artist myself I'd been looking forward to seeing this for months! I saw it from the freeway and saw the signs directing me. To my disappointment a tiny sign said "closed for the season". Really? The sculptures are there. I can't see them? The sculptures aren't going anywhere. I hadn't realized that it closed so early.

A poet/philosopher and an artist? In South Dakota, of course. Worth the stop, really great work.

If you're in the neighborhood, you should stop and visit Wayne @ Porter Sculpture Park! Though it does close for the colder weather seasons, it is worth the stop any time Memorial Day through September 15. It's a bizarre and wonderful place.

Was right off interstate so it wasn't like a long drive to go see. This alone made it worth seeing. Some interesting art.
