Indiana University East (IUE) invites you to participate in our 2019-2021 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 $2,500 per piece.


Deadline for Submissions: July 7, 2019

Jury will make selections and inform artists by: July 12, 2019

Delivery: Selected sculptures must be delivered to IUE between August 19, 2019-August 23, 2019

Sculptures to be removed: within one month of the exhibit’s closing on July 30, 2021


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. Short artists statement about the submitted pieces
  3. 3 images (front, back, and 1 detail)
  4. Dimensions for each submission and stated insurance value for each artwork. Each sculpture entry must be submitted individually.
