Eligibility:

Sculpture Evergreen has established a program of art acquisition that will beautify public buildings and open spaces in Evergreen, CO, located in the foothills west of Denver. Our mission is to encourage the expression and appreciation of art through education and other public activities and programs. A critical component of Sculpture Evergreen's mission is the annual Sculpture Walk. This is a juried exhibition of up to 16 large sculptures suitable for OUTDOOR DISPLAY. These will be on display for one year, until June, 2021, with the possibility of a few being held over for an additional year (with artist's permission. An additional stipend will be paid).  Sculptures must arrive in Evergreen on Friday, June 5, 2020. Sculptures will be installed Saturday, June 6, 2020. Artists must be present for their installation.  Sculptures will remain in place for one year. Artists must also be present for the de-installation the first week of June, 2021.  Sculptures must be soundly and professionally constructed of durable materials suitable for OUTDOOR  EXHIBIT.  They must withstand wind gusts up to 100 mph without incurring damage, and have a steel mounting plate for welding to a pedestal, have another suitable attachment method; or be of sufficient weight and durability that the sculpture can be safely and securely placed on the ground without toppling, or being removed in an unauthorized fashion. Any free-standing sculpture must be at least 42” tall to be considered. Many of our sites demand larger sculptures, and pieces standing between 4-12 feet in height have the best chance of being chosen The $30 entry fee includes entry of up to 3 pieces (nine photos in all). For each submitted sculpture, 3 photos must be provided: frontal, rear, and one detailed image. All works must be original. Accepted works must be identical to the images submitted.

Sculpture Evergreen receives a 25% commission on any sales occurring during the time the sculpture is included in the Walk. Since the inception of this competition, more than 35 pieces have been purchased for inclusion in Sculpture Evergreen's permanent collection and many more have been purchased by individuals. Entries must be submitted by January 31, 2020 (midnight Mountain Standard time). Artists will be notified of acceptance by phone in February, 2020. Sculptures must arrive in Evergreen on Friday, June 5, 2020 and will be installed the following day, Saturday, June 6, 2020. Artists must be present for the installation.  Overnight accommodations will be provided by Sculpture Evergreen for those artists traveling more than 50 miles from Evergreen.  Artists are invited to a Reception in their honor on Friday evening before the installation and to a celebratory brunch on Saturday following the installation.

Share

City:

Eligibility:

The call for submissions for the tenth edition of Sculpture in the City is now open for preexisting works that can be exhibited outdoors from May 2020 to May 2021.

The works submitted for consideration need to be suitable for outdoor display and available for display May 2020 to May 2021.  

Deadline for submissions 22nd September 2019

‘Art in a corporate setting has a bad rep. Show me a bank reception and I will show you a daffy, nondescript bronze selected mainly for being studiously uncontroversial. Sculpture in the City, however, is a different affair. Returning for its ninth edition, this large-scale open-air exhibition transforms the Square Mile into a giant sculpture park. And the best bit is that the art on show is genuinely worth seeing. […] All works 21 works are a pleasingly disruptive addition to the slick City landscape.’  Rosemary Waugh, Time Out
