The exhibit is scheduled to open in October, 2016.

Exhibiting artists will be paid a $1,000 stipend for the transportation, installation, and de-installation of their artwork.

The Havana BID is providing funds for cash awards in the following amounts:

  • 1st Place: $1,250
  • 2nd Place: $750
  • 3rd Place: $500

Sculptures may be purchased from the Art 2C on Havana exhibit and will be advertised as such. Aurora AIPP may purchase sculpture from the exhibit to be added to the City’s public art collection.

On Havana Street and the City of Aurora’s Art in Public Places program are proud to partner to bring the Sixth Annual Art 2C on Havana 2016. This highly successful and anticipated exhibition brings thirteen temporary sculptures annually to the business district. The exhibition provides residents and visitors with a unique way to experience the Business District. Public art such as this boosts real estate values and creates opportunities for local businesses to thrive while also providing sculptors with opportunities to share their work, gain recognition for the quality of their work, and compete for cash awards.

The City of Aurora Art in Public Places program has made it possible for locally and nationally renowned artists to enhance the city’s public spaces with works of art ranging from indoor wall hangings to monumental outdoor sculptures. The collection includes over 240 pieces valued at over $3 million, creating cultural landmarks that serve as a cornerstone of the city’s identity.
