Call to Artists

2014 Invitation to Sculptors

The City of Sheridan Public Arts Committee (SPAC) invites you to participate in our Juried 2014 on-loan, outdoor sculpture exhibit.

Since 2002, the City has invited a number of artists both in and out of state to participate in our public arts program. In the past ten years, Sheridan has acquired 44 permanent sculptures for our parks and downtown area, attracting tourist and local interest.

Entries are due January 15, 2014. The SPAC will make our selections and inform the artists by February 28th. Selected sculptures must be delivered to Sheridan between May 1st and June 1, 2014. You may submit more than one piece of work. If your work is selected the SPAC will pay a $500 honorarium per piece.

The Sculptures will be on display from June 2014 thru May 2015. As part of your loan agreement with the SPAC, we will actively market your works, while it is on display. If your sculpture is sold our commission is 25% so please mark your work accordingly.

The sculpture exhibit is outdoors, and open to the public, and because of this certain requirements must be met in order for your sculpture to be considered for display. This includes the sculpture being sufficiently durable and a minimum height of 16 inches. Fragile, dangerous, or inappropriate works will not be accepted.
This year, accepted artists are invited to attend the opening of the Sheridan College’s Big West Arts Festival on August 2, 2014 and be introduced to the community at that time. The Big West Art Festival will be celebrating it’s 9th year as an influential artistic establishment here in Sheridan. The festival last year drew over 40 participating artists, a number of musical guests and a fantastic crowd.

The SPAC will have a booth during the festival and invite accepted artists to bring small works of art to display and sell at the booth. We will take no commission from any sales you may have, but you are responsible for any transactions. Along with providing the booth, we will provide accommodations for one night.

Please register at CaFE.org and complete your profile to sign up for the Sheridan Call For Entry event or use the entry form and contract to apply. Please read it carefully and if you have any questions contact the SPAC. More information will also be sent upon your acceptance.
