City of Presidents
The City of Presidents sculpture exhibit is impossible to miss in downtown Rapid City. Life-sized bronze sculptures of U.S. presidents adorn many of the street corners. The project was started in 2000 and four new presidents are added to the exhibit each year—two presidents from the early years and two from more recent years. The project is scheduled to be completed in 2010.
The City of Presidents Information Center (302 Main St., June–early Oct Mon.–Sat. noon–9 p.m., closed in winter) provides maps, and staff can answer questions about the sculptors, the presidents, and the project.
