The City of Round Rock Arts and Culture seeks SCULPTOR applicants for its 2016 Art Sculpture Stroll and Display.
The Round Rock Sculpture Art Stroll is a vision of the Round Rock Arts and part of the Arts Master Plan. The goals are to provide visual interest on the Round Rock downtown area; increase the number and variety of outdoor public art installations by local and regional artists; stimulate creative thought and reflective conversation among residents and visitors.
Past exhibits had a wonderful array of artwork that addresses these goals and helps create a more vibrant area in the center of our city. This exhibit is made possible in part by the City of Round Rock Arts and Culture office with the help from the Texas Society of Sculpture, Round Rock Arts and the City of Round Rock Parks department for expert installation of the work.
We invite you to submit your work of sculpture for the 2016 Sculpture Art Stroll and Display. We are focusing on large scale, free standing, and interactive sculptures. The Round Rock Sculpture Art Display is an annual show of sculptures, which is on public display for 12 months. All works submitted must be of original design and execution, and must be available to install by the installation dates. The sculptures are placed in highly visible public spaces at Prete and Centennial Plazas, downtown walkways, and also are placed where they can be seen from an automobile while driving past. The artist must agree to a sales commission of 20% going to City of Round Rock Arts to be used for promotion and buying permanent works for the city.
The sculptures are outdoors and subject to all weather conditions. For the duration of each year’s show, the sculptures are “on loan” from the artists. Artists are paid an honorarium of $300 per artwork. There are specific spots for over 20 art sculptures (varying sizes). The City of Round Rock will help with the installation. Delivery to artwork is the responsibility of the artist. City of Round Rock agrees to insure the artwork for events such as theft, vandalism, or damage resulting from a car accident, while it is displayed on City property. The type and amount of insurance coverage shall be in the sole discretion of the City.
Sculptors are invited to submit images of their work for review. Artist may submit up to 3 original works in pdf or jpeg formats and email to firstname.lastname@example.org Artist must complete the attached “Artist Information sheet” to be included in the submission review. Jurying is based on the originality of the piece, its safety, durability, and suitability for an outdoor public exhibit. For more information call Scot Wilkinson, Director of Arts and Culture at 512-671-2705 or email@example.com
