Through an extraordinary visual arts exhibition, come experience the story of Sioux Falls’ newest monumental sculpture. Spanning the Big Sioux River between 6th and 8th Streets in downtown Sioux Falls, the Arc of Dreams represents the leaps of faith we all take to achieve our dreams. See how sculptor Dale Lamphere, South Dakota’s Artist Laureate, brought the dream of this sculpture to life.
Dale Lamphere’s work includes more than 60 public monumental sculptures installed throughout the United States. In South Dakota, he is well-known for Dignity, a 50-foot, 12-ton stainless steel sculpture honoring the Indigenous nations of South Dakota, located near Chamberlain. In 2015, South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugaard named Lamphere the South Dakota Artist Laureate, a position that had been vacant since the 1983 death of Oscar Howe, who was given the honor in 1954. Lamphere was inducted into the South Dakota Hall of Fame in 1987, and resides in Sturgis, SD.
