The Decatur Arts Alliance seeks sculptures to be placed in the city of Decatur, Georgia as part of the Decatur Artway. Sculptors are encouraged to be a part of this two-year sculpture exhibition. 

The Decatur Arts Alliance will in partnership with the Decatur Tourism Bureau and the Downtown Development Authority to market the Decatur Artway to include (but not limited to) printed walking/cycling/driving sculpture tours, online tour with a mobile app and docent lead tours for visitors and residents. The Decatur Artway opening will include an artist talk which will be videotaped and used on the mobile app and website. 

Selected artists will be awarded an honorarium of $2000. The installed work may be available for sale. Artwork sold as a result of the Decatur Artway will be subject to a 20% commission, which will be deducted from the purchase price and retained by the Decatur Arts Alliance. 

The sculpture must be available for the duration of the two-year contract. All submissions must be professionally constructed of durable materials which will withstand the elements. No maquettes or renderings will be considered for selection. We will only accept existing and ready to install works. All durable outdoor media are encouraged. Work installation dates will be mid to late October but are subject to change due to pandemic restrictions and artist limitations. The lease will extend from October 2021 - October 2023.

Please note--if the submitted work has been selected and confirmed for another exhibition before August 1, 2021,  please contact Angie Macon, Decatur Arts Alliance at your earliest convenience.
