We’ve heard that the Public Art League in Champaign, Illinois is looking for sculptors to join their esteemed competition this 2011. The competition is open to all professional visual artists aged 18 years and older. Despite the open theme, their website says that there is a strong search for artwork that showcases a sense of reflection into the cultural arts, diversity within the community and creativity.
Artists entering the competition should be aware that their sculpture must be durable enough to exist outdoors for long periods of time. Artists will also be responsible for transportation of their artworks to the exhibition site, installing their own works and providing public information regarding their art. Criteria for judging will be Artistic excellence and originality, Appropriateness of the artist’s vision, medium, style and experience, and appropriateness in a public environment. This is just passed on information. Please visit the source of this article’s writing here
