CALL TO ARTISTS

“Bird Houses and Nests” Exhibition September 26th – January 3rd, 2021

SculptureTucson (ST) and Tucson Botanical Gardens (TBG) are hosting a joint exhibition of outdoor sculpture related to “Bird Houses and Nests.”

All work will be on display in outdoor garden spaces, so artists are encouraged to create work that is large-scale in size.  While there is no maximum size restriction, works smaller than 5 feet high will not be considered, unless the piece is mounted on a base, and the entire sculpture plus base is equal to 5 feet.  Sculptures must be secured to the base.

To be considered for this exhibition, artists are invited to submit digital images of previously completed works.  Based on those images, artists will be invited to create a new work for the exhibition. Each chosen artist will receive a $500 honorarium. This is a financial gesture, in addition to a possible exhibition sale, and should not be expected to cover the cost of fabrication.

The “Birdhouses and Nests” Call to Artists is open to artists 18 years and older working in all sculpture media. All works must be original works of art.

DEADLINE

All completed applications must be received by ST by 5:00 p.m., May 15th, 2020.
