Enjoy World-Class Art With The Impressive Michelangelo’s Moses Replica In South Dakota
Do you appreciate the finer things in life but do not have the finances to back them? Join the club… fortunately, you do not need to take an expensive trip or fork over loads of cash to partake in the finer things, thanks to such unique Mount Rushmore State attractions as Fawick Park and its on-site, world-class art.
Located in Sioux Falls is the lovely Fawick Park, and its surprising, must-see Michaelangelo replicas!
Created by Sioux Falls residents Thomas L. (an inventor and industrialist) and Marie (an art lover) Fawick, the couple commissioned a sculptor to travel to Italy and recreate the world-famous works of art, which the artist did by working closely with the government to make exact, full-sized replicas.
When you visit the park today, you will be stunned to see such flawless replicas of two of Michaelangelo's most famous pieces: David and Moses.
In addition to the sculptures themselves, each piece features a plaque that tells about both Michaelangelo and the Fawicks' generosity in donating the art to the City of Sioux Falls.
Like all great parks, Fawick - which is located on Augustana University's campus - also boasts lovely trails and riverside seating, making for the perfect place to spend an afternoon.

Fawick Park is open every day from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m.
