Public Sculpture Exhibition (Penticton, BC) – Call For Artists

Public Sculpture Exhibition (Penticton, BC) – Call For Artists

[Sponsored Listing] The City of Penticton, BC, Canada announces a call for artists for their Public Sculpture Exhibition. Created in 2016, Penticton’s Public Sculpture Exhibition (PPSE) is a year-long outdoor exhibit of original sculptures. The sculptures are owned by the artists and leased by the City of Penticton.

The Penticton Sculpture Walk Exhibition is committed to serving the public by providing access to various mediums of public sculpture. It is well noted that public art slows down the pedestal traffic, providing a positive impact on the enjoyment and mood of the general public, that influences how people see and connect within their communities, and provides an opportunity for dialogue between friends and strangers alike. Through an annual revolving collection of sculptures, the City of Penticton hopes to provide a freshness to public art that engages, connects, and provides its community with a sense of image and identity, as well as including artists as contributors to this cultural fabric.

Light-emitting Sculpture (Minneapolis, MN) – Call For Artists

Light-emitting Sculpture (Minneapolis, MN) – Call For Artists

[Sponsored Listing] The Midtown Greenway Coalition has issued a call for sculpture concepts to select an artist for a proposed Midtown Greenway Light-emitting Sculpture. This sculpture will be an important improvement to the Midtown Greenway, Minnesota’s busiest non-motorized transportation corridor that serves thousands daily, and the East Phillips Neighborhood in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Click here for the application / registration

Enter by: 3 Dec 2021 4pm CT

Showcase how public art can be a functional item that lights up a dark area and inspires additional projects elsewhere along the 5.5 mile-long Midtown Greenway, the #1 urban bikeway in the U.S. This Light-emitting Sculpture is an opportunity to work directly with an impacted community in a largely low-income and very diverse neighborhood.

An Advisory Team composed of neighbors will select three finalists. The Advisory Team for the sculpture is composed of residents on the two blocks adjacent to the proposed sculpture location and includes Latina, African American African immigrant, white, and queer people. The public will vote for their favorite design from among those three, based largely on the sculpture’s likelihood of making viewers say “Wow!” A contract for up to $8,000 will be offered to the winning artist for the design phase, resulting in a detailed design that can be used to pursue approvals to install the sculpture in public space. An additional contract for construction and installation will likely be offered to the winning artist to achieve sculpture installation by late August 2022. The sculpture will be unusual in that it will be a thing of beauty and quality in a high crime neighborhood where morale needs a boost.

About The Midtown Greenway Coalition

The Midtown Greenway Coalition is the grassroots nonprofit organization that advocated for public agencies to create the Midtown Greenway. The Coalition continues to serve as the community’s voice in protecting, improving, and promoting the use of the Midtown Greenway.

About Castlegar Sculpturewalk

Inspired by, and borne of, local artist Pat Field’s participation in the Sculpturewalk program of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Castlegar Sculpturewalk began in 2010 with just ten sculptures. When Castlegar City Council learned of Sioux Falls’ downtown revitalization initiative tied to the cultural economy, they realized that they faced many of the same downtown revitalization issues and agreed to a trial project.

Incredibly, with community and basin support, and a dedicated group of volunteers, this cautious trial project grew beyond expectations into Castlegar becoming The Sculpture Capital of Canada™. Downtown Castlegar is now one of the few venues in Canada where artists have the opportunity to show and sell outdoor sculptural work, bringing international artists to the community, and supporting emerging local and regional talent.
