Sip & See Suwanee’s Newest Pieces of Art at the May 20 Event
Twenty or so prominent new residents will be moving into Suwanee this spring! The fifth installment of the city’s popular SculpTour temporary sculpture exhibition will be installed this May.

Sip & See will feature guided, strolling wine tours (hence the “sip”) of the new art, an opportunity to meet some of the featured artists and discuss their work, as well as a performance of Memphis by the Aurora Theatre on the Town Center stage. With goals to enliven Town Center, attract visitors, and stimulate interest in Suwanee’s public art program, SculpTour adds to the sense of dynamism, energy, rhythm, and ritual in the city.
