All of the above sculptures, and many more, were within easy walking distance of the Phillips Avenue Diner so we had lunch there.
We walked around for 20 minutes and then went inside to continue our wait for a table. Three tables were empty for 10 minutes before we finally asked the hostess why we weren't seated when there were empty tables. Food was good though, and that 's high praise from me because I'm seldom satisfied with the food. After lunch we walked a little further up Phillips Avenue to see some more sculptures.

Best way to enjoy a city, in my opinion. Yankton had one also, but none of the sculptures were half as good as the ones in Sioux Falls. I wonder why? Higher entry fee? Better artists wanting more exposure in a bigger town? Who buys these? Well, the local library bought the one with the book theme one year!
