The exhibition will be juried by Porter Arneill, who serves as the Director/Public Art Administrator for the Kansas City, Missouri Municipal Art Commission.
Deadline for entries is 4 p.m. Friday, February 22, 2013. Eight artists’ works will be selected and each will receive a $1200 honorarium and publication in the exhibition brochure.
The sculptures will be on display for one year in downtown Lawrence. In order to highlight the work of local sculptors, this year’s exhibition entries will be limited to artists residing within a 15-mile radius of Lawrence. All work must be free standing, of sound design, and suitable for long-term outdoor public display without external support. Competition is open to artists 18 and older. All entries must be original work.
