The City of Santa Clara and its Cultural Commission (CA), Call for San Francisco Bay Area Artists: City of Santa Clara Indoor Sculpture Exhibition
Deadline: February 16th, 2018, 11:59pm PST
The City of Santa Clara and its Cultural Commission are pleased to announce an opportunity for artists to create a 3-dimensional artwork for its biennial Indoor Sculpture Exhibition. The exhibition’s theme is “Out of the Darkness, Light”. Incorporation of LED, Electro-Luminescent Wire, and other sustainable sources of illumination are encouraged but not required. The theme can also be interpreted as a journey, pilgrimage or epiphany.
The artist can explore a range of artistic expression, from low-tech installations to contemporary uses of technology, including interactivity. The artwork is not limited to any specific material or medium and is open to a wide range of artistic styles. The art installation should be a 3-dimensional sculpture no taller than 5 feet, and able to be mounted on a pedestal that is approximately 3 feet wide by 3 feet deep.
Finalists will be awarded monetary prizes: $500 for first place, $250 for second place, and $50 for Honorable Mention. The First Place winner may be featured in future City of Santa Clara Activities Guides, and the image of the artwork may also be featured on the City’s web page, local Channel 15 slide show rotation, future Sculpture Exhibition brochures, and other City branding.
