The imagination of the artist is the guide. There is not a theme for the benches. Selected artists will have their sculpted bench, with recognition, installed at the Bates Street Park and festival street. The chosen artists will receive $8,000 per bench to include design, fabrication, and installation of the bench. Selected artists shall receive one-half of the honorarium upon execution of the contract and one-half upon delivery and installation of the work. The artists bench will be listed along with all other permanent sculpture in the Keller Public Arts permanent collection on the website.
