Renowned sculptor Alex Palkovich made Florence his home from 1998 until 2015, first as a Global MRI Manufacturing Manager for GE Medical, and then as a full-time sculptor. His work can be found across South Carolina, and the greatest concentration is at the Florence Veterans Park. He was elected as a Fellow of the National Sculpture Society in 2020, adding to his list of achievements which can be found on his website. Palkovich now spends half his time in Israel, and half at his studios.
We’ve put together a sculpture trail of all of his works in South Carolina.
There is no life without sculpture. Everything is sculpture. The building in which you dwell, the chair upon which you sit, the car that you drive – all is sculpture.
