Posted: September 26, 2013 Sculpture Tour Eau Claire Announces Call to Artists
The Eau Claire Regional Arts Council, Inc. has announced the opening of 2014-2015 Sculpture Tour Eau Claire "Call to Artists" application. Sculpture Tour Eau Claire presents an annual outdoor exhibit of sculpture on public display for 11 months in downtown Eau Claire. The sculptures are placed in highly visible public spaces and pedestrian walkways, which can also be seen from a passing automobile.
Artists applying to the Eau Claire Tour are also eligible for consideration as part of the Sculpture One Partner Network that includes: Mason City, Iowa; Castlegar, British Columbia; Mankato, Minnesota; and Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Artists who choose to place their sculptures in the Partner Network have the potential to be chosen by each of the cities over a five year period.
The Sculpture Tour Eau Claire jury selects 27-31 sculptures each year for exhibition. Artists are eligible to win awards in Best of Show and People's Choice categories. The People's Choice award, determined by popular vote, is a purchase award. Since 2012, the Sculpture Tour has sold 12 sculptures for public and private display in Eau Claire.
The Call to Artists application deadline is October 9 and applications are available online at www.sculpturetour.org on the Contacts page under Downloads. For more information on applying, please contact Rose Dolan-Neill at 715-832-8727 ext. 107 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
