Sponsors The Tour

Each year the Decatur Sculpture Tour continues to grow. This growth comes through partnerships with the City of Decatur and our business sponsors. Many sponsors provided financial support with the confidence that the DST Committee will deliver a notable exhibit, and that the unveiling festival will be fun and memorable. Please consider sponsoring.
