The Decatur Artway IV – Call For Artists
The Decatur Arts Alliance seeks sculptures for the Decatur Artway IV, to be placed in the city of Decatur, Georgia. Sculptors are encouraged to be a part of this two-year sculpture exhibition. The sculpture must be available for the duration of the two year contract. All submissions must be professionally constructed of durable materials which will withstand the elements. No maquettes or renderings will be considered for selection. Delivery and installation of the selected work will be scheduled the week of October 16 – 21, 2018.
Deadline: 31 Jul 2018
The Decatur Artway IV artists will be awarded an honorarium of $2000. The installed work may be available for sale. Artwork sold as a result of the Decatur Artway will be subject to a 20% commission which will be deducted from the purchase price and retained by the Decatur Arts Alliance.
The sculpture will be installed in the Oakhurst neighborhood of Decatur, GA, recently named a 2018 All American City. It is located five miles from downtown Atlanta. Decatur is known for its pedestrian friendly downtown district and is accessible by three rapid rail stations. Although Decatur, GA, is part of the Atlanta metro area, it is a city unto itself with an identity all its own. At 23,000 people, Decatur sits just to the east of Atlanta. It has become a favorite of single professionals, young couples, and families thanks to its strong schools, low crime rate, and beautiful historic homes.
The Decatur Arts Alliance will, in partnership with the Decatur Tourism Bureau and the Downtown Development Authority, market the Decatur Artway and include (but not limit to) printed walking/cycling/driving sculpture tours, online tour with mobile app, and docent lead tours for visitors and residents. The Decatur Artway opening will include an artist talk which will be videotaped and used on the mobile app and website.
