TOUR

ART is an adventure – a visual medium that thrills the eye & stimulates the senses.

art takes us to places we never thought we’d go. let this free, self-guided art and sculpture tour take you somewhere you’ve never been —Newton, iowa! Walk, bike or drive through this charming town filled with spectacular art that appeals to every style and sensibility. Come be inspired – your adventure awaits!

NAVIGATING NEWToN

The City of Newton is laid out in an easy-to-follow grid and quadrant pattern. For the purpose of this tour, and to help guide you through nearly 90 installations of art and sculpture, here are a few tips:

Jasper County Courthouse is the center point — located on The Square at 1st Avenue and 1st Street (look for h on the maps)

Avenues run east and west

Streets run north and south

For example: If you’re east of the Courthouse and north of 1st Avenue, you would be in the Northeast quadrant so a street address in that area would be East xx Street North, or an avenue address would be North xx Avenue East.

The Newton Sculpture Tour is divided into three smaller tours: DOWNTOWN – An exploration focusing on sculptures and wall murals located in the central part of town, most within walking distance of each other. The INNER CIRCLE, a more moderate jaunt; and the OuTER CIRCLE featuring slightly more dispersed installations. For the more distant tours, use a bicycle or car.

Some pieces are placed indoors and may only be viewed during business hours. Please respect the privacy of businesses and private citizens who graciously participate in this tour. Photography for recreational private use is acceptable.

A component of the civic effort Newton’s Future: A Comprehensive Plan, the entities mentioned above developed a community
sculpture rental and sale program. Launched in 2014, the first sites are listed above, with the goal of adding more in the
future. The rental program seeks to heighten awareness for public art in the community and selected works, submitted
through an annual call for entries, will be sited each April and remain in place until approximately November 1st.
