The Salisbury Public Art Committee announces a call for entries for the 2020 Salisbury Sculpture Show. Artists are invited to submit their outdoor pieces for consideration in the award-winning art installation program by Friday, Dec. 20.
The Salisbury Sculpture Show is a 10-month art show in which a select group of sculptures is placed throughout Salisbury, including in the downtown area and at the city’s three colleges. Last year, more than 50 entries were judged, with three sculptures chosen as winners.
In the upcoming show, pieces chosen for display will be carefully sited to enhance the sculptures’ visibility and ease of access. Artists may submit up to three entries. High-resolution images with a completed entry form, and up to three photos per entry sculpture are encouraged. Selected artists will transport and install pieces with on-site assistance where needed and prearranged. The city will provide concrete pads and installation support. Sculptors are responsible for anchoring systems. The art will be insured by the City of Salisbury.
Artists should submit a PDF document that includes at least two high-resolution images of each submitted work. Submissions are a separate PDF document than the entries into the annual Salisbury Sculpture Show.
Selected artists will receive a $1,250 stipend for each piece chosen for the sculpture show.
