Quality of the work will be juried to ensure professional, diverse and attractive styles. The Sculpture-on-Loan display in Carmichael Park, is part of the City’s Eye for Art Program. Artists are invited to display their outdoor sculptures in this 12-month exhibit. Five sculptures will be selected and the artist of each will receive a $500 honorarium at placement. In addition, $1,000 will be awarded for a public-voted “Brighton’s Choice” award, as well as possible purchasing by the public and/or the City. To date, the program has sold ten sculptures that are located throughout the City.

Going into our sixth year in 2024, we have great momentum as an artist community and received a significant amount of praise and positive feedback from artists, patrons, and the media.
