SCULPTURE IN THE PARK, heralded as one of the finest outdoor juried exhibitions of three-dimensional artwork in the United States, will be held August 11 - 13, 2023 in Loveland's nationally acclaimed Benson Sculpture Garden. Sponsored by the Loveland High Plains Arts Council (LHPAC), the 39th Annual Show and Sale will host 160 of the most talented sculptors from around the world. Each year, this outstanding exhibit attracts 15,000 – 20,000 art lovers and collectors from across the country. Sales last year exceeded $1,600,000 with over 93% of the artists selling their work. 

Proceeds from the show go toward the purchase of sculpture for the Benson Sculpture Garden’s permanent collection, as well as toward the funding of park improvements and landscaping. To date, 178 pieces of sculpture, valued at over $5 million, grace the grounds of the park. Participating artists in Sculpture in the Park are invited to submit pieces for consideration for purchase. 

The 2023 Call for Entries welcomes applications from new and previous exhibiting artists. Sculpture in the Park, the largest outdoor juried sculpture show and sale in the United States, endeavors to diversify and enrich each show by featuring a wide range of artistic expression.
