"I cannot conceive how any city can describe itself as major if it does not provide its citizens with experiences in the arts."
-James A. Michener
to "Sculptures in the City," a tradition of public art instituted by the Dowagiac Dogwood Fine Arts Festival. It is our pleasure to guide you to these beautiful sculptures. Each work of art is an investment made by private residents, families, organizations or companies in the community, with no public funding. Each have been generously donated to the City of Dowagiac and dedicated to its citizens.
“The word ‘Dowagiac’ is inspired by a Native American word meaning ‘foraging ground,’ referencing abundance in food and game. Happiness is coexistence; a city of people in an area of abundance; a collective pursuit; all must surely lead to Abundant Happiness.” –Richard Taylor
