Sculpture Boothbay is pleased to announce an open call for artists for inclusion on the Boothbay Region Sculpture Trail’s 2021 season. We invite artists to submit proposals for inclusion on the Boothbay Sculpture Trail for the 2021 season. Artists selected will receive a $200 honorarium and support with installation and siting. It is incumbent upon the artists to arrange transportation of the work to the Boothbay Region. 

The sculpture trail is located in the Boothbay Region of Midcoast Maine. Established in 2017, the Trail is a public art exhibit installed throughout the Boothbay peninsula that can be experienced on foot or by car. The collection includes work by artists from around the world, with a focus on those living and working in the state Maine.

Works on exhibit are intended to be available for sale through the artist. The organization will not charge commission for sales made this season.

Sculpture Boothbay is a 501c(3) non-profit organization that promotes, exhibits, and educates visitors and students on the art and practice of sculpture, sculpting, and art-making. Sculpture Boothbay works with partner organizations to host the Maine Stone Symposium, the Boothbay Region Sculpture Trail, the Point of View and Ocean Point Auctions. For more information, please contact Sculpture Boothbay at contact@sculptureboothbay.org or visit www.sculptureboothbay.org.

Please keep in mind that this is an OUTDOOR sculpture trail. While the organization will provide general maintenance to the trail and the sculptures, the work will be sited outside and uncovered for the duration of the season. Sculptures selected will be on view for up to two years.

Proposals are due May 25, 2021.

Sculpture Boothbay Board members and a select advisory committee of community members will conduct a review of proposals. Selected artists will be notified by June 1.

Selected sculptures must arrive by June 15, 2021
