WELCOME TO THE SCULPTUREONE PARTNER’S NETWORK!
The PARTNER’S NETWORK and satellites provide artists the opportunity to exhibit sculptures in 7 different communities.
For example: An artist could exhibit 4 different sculptures in the 4 programs at the same time. Or a sculpture could be in Mankato the 1st year, Eau Claire the 2nd year Mason City 3rd year and Webster City the 4th year, or get sold or leased along the way. In each program sculptors receive $1,000 honorariums for each sculpture, hotel accommodations, compete for awards and the People’s Choice purchase in 3 communities. Our professional movers move sculptures from program to program. And then we have the satellite programs where your sculptures would also receive honorariums and have opportunities to sell.
- If your sculpture was to circulate to every Partner the honorariums would total $4,000.00, add the satellites the total would be $8,000.00.
- The Call to Sculptors for the Satellites will be posted at a later date.
- All Partners and Satellites have organized sales programs
- The Partners have sold 162 sculptures!
