Artistic rendering of the Arc of Dreams

Overview

It takes a big and unique idea to pay tribute to those who had dreams and succeeded, those who are dreaming and those who will dream.

We're calling this idea the Arc of DreamsTM, a massive stainless steel sculpture that will span across the Big Sioux River downtown nearly the length of a football field between 6th and 8th streets. At the center of the Arc of Dreams is a 15-foot gap, 70 feet above the river, representing the leap of faith dreamers take to see their dreams come true.

"The Arc of Dreams is the SculptureWalk capstone, recognizing and elevating this art program to national prominence," said Jim Clark, SculptureWalk founder and the thrust behind the Arc of Dreams.

It will become a signature piece of art for the city of Sioux Falls, helping to illustrate what we want to be… a unique and thriving modern city on the prairie.

But first, you have to take a leap of faith...

Donor Pavers

The Sculptor

Dale Lamphere's work explores a broad range of materials and subjects from monumental landscapes to abstracts and even the human form. His work "Song of Creation" can be seen at the entrance to the Avera McKennan Hospital and University Health Center in Sioux Falls, and "Tall Grass" stands outside the Washington Pavilion.

A resident of Sturgis, SD, he has completed more than 50 major commissioned sculptures, featured in venues from Washington D.C.’s National Shrine to the Eisenhower Medical Center in California.

The Walk of Dreams

Dream Even Bigger

Since we're dreaming big, let's not stop with the Arc of Dreams.

Imagine a walking path – the Walk of Dreams – on either side of the Arc, along the Big Sioux, highlighting the stories of the city's great dreamers. Pavers featuring the names of everyone who made the Arc possible will line the Walk of Dreams. After the Arc is created and installed, an innovative website may be created to fully illustrate the magic of the Arc and the Walk to students throughout the area. It will encourage our youth to dream and succeed.

Finally, a permanent endowment will be established at the Sioux Falls Area Community Foundation that will assist future dreamers and maintain the Arc and Walk.

It's a complete program that will pay tribute to our past, present and future dreamers, and show our citizens and visitors just what makes Sioux Falls a very special place in America.
