Sculpture Evergreen has established a program of art acquisition that will beautify public buildings and open spaces in Evergeen and Kittredge, located in the foothills West of Denver. Its mission is to encourage the expression and appreciation of art through education and other public activities and programs. A critical component of Sculpture Evergreen's mission is the annual Sculpture Walk. This is a juried exhibition of up to 16 large sculptures suitable for outdoor display. These will be on display for one year, with two to three being held over for a second year (with the artist's permission). A stipend of $700 will be awarded for each accepted sculpture. There is a Juried Award of $1000, and awards for 1st and 2nd place and People's Choice. There is a chance your sculpture will be purchased outright by one of the area’s many art patrons. Sculpture Evergreen receives a 25% commission on any sales occuring during the time the sculpture is included in the Walk. Since the inception of this competition, 33 pieces have been purchased for inclusion in Sculpture Evergreen's permanent collection and many more have been purchased by individuals. Entries need to be submitted through CaFE by February 1, 2017 (midnight Mountain Standard time). Artists will be notified of acceptance by phone by February 28, 2017. Sculptures need to arrive in Evergreen on Friday, June 2nd, 2017 and the artists must be present for the installation the following day. The artists are invited to attend the Sculpture Walk Artist Reception on Friday evening. Sculptures will be installed Saturday June 3rd, 2016. Sculptures will remain in place for one year (until June 1st, 2018). Artists must also be present for the de-installation at that time. Sculptures must be suitable for outdoor display. Sculptures must be soundly and professionally constructed of durable materials and suitable for outdoor exhibit, can withstand wind gusts up to 100 mph without incurring damage, and has a steel mounting plate for welding to a pedestal; has another suitable attachment method; or is of sufficient weight and durability that it can be safely and securely placed on the ground without toppling, or being removed in an unauthorized fashion. Any free-standing sculpture must be at least 42” tall to be considered. Many of our sites demand larger sculptures, and pieces standing between 4-12 feet in height have the best chance of being chosen, however, we do have one or two sites for smaller pieces which may be viewed more intimately. The $30 entry fee includes entry of up to 3 pieces (nine photos in all). For each submitted sculpture, 3 photos must be provided: frontal, rear, and one detailed image. All works must be original. Accepted works must be identical to the images submitted. Please familiarize yourself with our website, and note the sites for sculptures.
