About the Yokna Sculpture Trail

Featuring a rotating exhibit of 18 large-scale sculptures by locally, regionally, and nationally renowned exhibiting artists, this collaboration between the City of Oxford, The University of Mississippi, and the Yoknapatawpha Arts Council is the first outdoor sculpture program of its kind in North Mississippi. A vibrant arts culture and beautiful green spaces are at the heart of what makes our community great. It is our hope that this trail, that highlights both, will be a source of enjoyment for residents and visitors for years to come!

Co-founders of the Yokna Sculpture Trail include Wayne Andrews, Director of the Yoknapatawpha Arts Council; Earl Dismuke, Resident Artist of the City of Oxford; and Durant Thompson, Associate Professor of Sculpture at The University of Mississippi. Special thanks to the Rebel Sculpture Society and the Leadership Lafayette Class of 2015 Team Inspiren. Leadership Lafayette is a program of the Oxford-Lafayette County Chamber of Commerce.

Submissions have now ended for the 2018-2020 Yokna Sculpture Trail. New sculptures will be installed this spring.
