Sculpture Evergreen will merge with Center for the Arts Evergreen (CAE) by the end of the year. The two organizations are finalizing an agreement to become one, with Sculpture Evergreen becoming a part of CAE. Both organizations are thriving, and the timing is right to combine forces. Next spring CAE will break ground on a major sculpture and ceramics addition to its facilities, and is excited about adding Sculpture Evergreen’s permanent sculpture collection and annual Sculpture Walk to its scope of activities. We are happy to share this news with you and look forward to an exciting collaboration.
Sculpture Evergreen has established a program of public art acquisition to beautify open spaces and public buildings in Evergreen, CO, in the foothills west of Denver. A critical component of Sculpture Evergreen's mission is the annual Sculpture Walk.
Initiated in 1999, this is a juried exhibition of up to 16 large sculptures suitable for OUTDOOR DISPLAY. All works must be original. A stipend of $1000.00 will be awarded for each accepted sculpture. In addition, there is a Juried Award of $1000.00 for artistic excellence. Sculptures will be on display for 1 year until June 1, 2024.
Sculpture Evergreen shall make reasonable efforts to sell the art during the Sculpture Walk. Sculptures will be installed Saturday, June 3, 2023. Artists must be present for their installation. Artists must also be present for the deinstallation the first week of June, 2024.
Sculptures must be soundly and professionally constructed to withstand wind gusts up to 75 mph which are common in Evergreen. Sculptures must have a steel mounting plate for welding to a pedestal, have another suitable attachment method, or be of sufficient weight and durability that the sculpture can be safely and securely placed on the ground without toppling, or being removed in an unauthorized fashion. Sculptures must be at least 4 feet tall to be eligible. Many of our sites demand larger sculptures, and pieces standing between 4-12 feet in height have the best chance of being chosen.
The $35.00 entry fee includes entry for two pieces. Artist may add a third piece for an additional $10.00. For each submitted sculpture, three photos must be provided: front, rear, and detail. Each individual artist may submit up to three pieces.
All works must be original. Accepted works must be identical to the images submitted. Our website will provide insight into the variety of locations available throughout Evergreen. For more information about Sculpture Evergreen, go to www.sculptureevergreen.org.

Sculpture Evergreen receives a 25%commission on any sales occurring during the time the sculpture is included in the Walk. Since the inception of this competition, more than 35 pieces have been purchased for inclusion in Sculpture Evergreen's permanent collection and many more have been purchased by individuals.
Artists will be notified of acceptance by phone in mid-February, 2023. Sculptures must arrive in Evergreen on Friday, June 2, 2023 and will be installed the following day, Saturday, June 3, 2023. Artists must be present for the installation. Overnight accommodations will be provided by Sculpture Evergreen for those artists traveling more than 50 miles from Evergreen. Artists must also be present for the deinstallation in June, 2024. Artists are invited to an Artist Reception in their honor on the Friday evening before the installation.
