There are presently no restrictions on size; however, artists should be aware that sculptures will be placed within a well-traveled shopping/gallery streetscape on a 3 ½’ x 3 ½’ plinth.
The installation method for each sculpture should be welded tabs or similar easy-install method.
Selected artists are responsible for transportation (and associated transportation costs) of the artwork to and from the installation site.

The City of Loveland is responsible for making minor emergency repairs when necessary and maintaining insurance coverage on the works due to vandalism. The City will not be liable for degradation caused by normal wear and tear, and weathering. In the event the installation is bronze work, the Artist should cold wax the artwork prior to, or immediately following, installation. While the Artwork should be relatively maintenance-free, the City or its assigns assumes responsibility for minor maintenance.
