Juried by Jean Shin | On view Oct. 6, 2017–Oct. 6, 2018

Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art, Auburn University (JCSM) is one of Alabama’s leading art museums, with a growing collection of art ranging from traditional to contemporary—including outdoor sculpture! JCSM is accepting submissions from sculptors to participate in Out of the Box: A Juried Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition (Out of the Box) opening October 6, 2017.

Out of the Box is a biennial competition that began in 2013 in celebration of the museum’s 10-year anniversary. Now in our third iteration, our program continues in its goal of presenting engaging and educational works of art to our university audience and broader community, as well as actively pursuing the growth of our permanent collection of outdoor sculpture.

Artwork chosen for display in this year’s exhibition will be installed on the museum's grounds until October 6, 2018. This call for sculpture is open to all artists, age 18 and older. Entries must be received by June 1, 2017. 

Up to 15 finalists will be selected to have their work displayed at the museum. All finalists whose work is displayed will receive a $1,000 honorarium. First prize is an additional $3,000. The second place winner will receive an additional $1,500, and the recipient of the honorable mention will receive an additional $500. Sponsored awards might also be available. 

Selections will be made through a blind-jurying process. Only images and basic descriptions of the works will be made available to the juror. (Please visit http://jcsm.auburn.edu/outofthebox2017/ for more information about juror Jean Shin.) 

There is a one-time $25 entry fee that is to be paid through the separate Auburn University Marketplace website: https://secure.touchnet.net/C20021_ustores/web/store_cat.jsp?STOREID=49&CATID=297 

Finalists will be notified of their inclusion in the exhibition no later than June 30, 2017. Award winners will be announced at the opening reception on October 6, 2017.
