2017 Invitation to Sculptors

Indiana University East (IUE) invites you to participate in our 2017-2019 juried, on-loan, outdoor sculpture exhibit on the Richmond, Indiana campus. IUE is a regional campus of Indiana University with a vibrant arts program and extensive art collection.   Selected artists must be willing to enter into an Art Loan Agreement with IUE and will be awarded an honorarium of $2,000 per piece.


Deadline for Submissions: June 30, 2017

Jury will make selections and inform artists by: July 7, 2017

Delivery: Selected sculptures must be delivered to IUE between August 1, 2017-August 15, 2017

Exhibition Schedule: August 16, 2017-August 15, 2019

Sculptures to be removed: within one month prior to the exhibit’s closing on August 15, 2019


Eligibility:  Artists must own the rights to the artwork, which must be available for the duration of the two-year exhibition period.  Artwork must be ready to set on our 8’x8’ concrete pads.  The installation method for each sculpture should be welded steel tabs or similar easy-install method.

The exhibit is outdoors and open to the public, because of this, certain requirements must be met in order for a sculpture to be considered for display.  Fragile or dangerous works will not be accepted.  Artwork must be available for the duration of the two-year contract, and must be constructed of durable materials that will withstand year-round Indiana weather.

Transportation:  Selected artists are responsible for transportation of the artwork to and from the installation site.  The artwork must be delivered as exhibition-ready.  The university will supervise installation of the work, and will insure the artwork for the duration of the exhibit.

Submission Details:  Artists may submit up to two sculptures for consideration, but each submission will be considered separately.  Each submission must include the following:

  1.  A bio/resume describing your experience and exhibition history
  2.  3 images (front, back, and 1 detail)
  3. Dimensions for each submission and stated insurance value for each artwork
  4. Each sculpture entry must be submitted individually
