Deadline for Application: 

  • Wednesday, January 4, at 11:59pm eastern time

Background: 

  • The Town of Apex is a dynamic community dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for its citizens, visitors, and the greater Triangle region.

This exhibit will bring new focus to the already vibrant downtown scene and enhance the connection to the nearby Town Hall campus and Hunter Street Park.  

Call Summary: 

  • Sculpture must be an original design.
  • Priority will be given to those sculptures completed within the last three years but other works will be considered.
  • Creativity and innovation of design is encouraged.
  • Sculpture must be suitable for viewing by all ages.
  • Sculpture may not be used for advertisement or to promote businesses or products.
  • Designs must not include any breach of intellectual property, trademarks, brands, business names, corporate or organizational branding or images of drugs.
  • Sculpture can be of any medium, but artists should consider structural and surface soundness and materials that can withstand outside and uncovered weather conditions as well as inherent resistance to theft, vandalism, and excessive maintenance and repair costs. Artists will be required to outline in their proposal their own experience with the material.
