Call For Outdoor Sculpture Artists
Newport Beach, CA
The City of Newport Beach (City) is pleased to announce a call for entries for Phase V of its ongoing Invitational Sculpture Exhibition to further activate the splendor of the City’s Civic Center Park. Artists, private collectors, galleries, and museums/non-profit institutions are invited to submit artworks for consideration for a temporary exhibition at the site. Up to ten artworks may be selected and showcased for two years in the heart of Newport Beach in Civic Center Park.
NO FEE TO ENTER. SUBMISSION DEADLINE JANUARY 15, 2020.
The 14-acre, ocean-view site was specially designed by renowned landscape architect Peter Walker as an intended sculpture garden. The Civic Center Park has also developed into a destination for visitors and residents of Newport Beach to gather for civic events and activities including summer concerts on the lawn, art shows, docent-led sculpture park tours, visits to the dog park, or leisurely walks along the park’s windy trail. As home to City Hall, City administrative offices, and the Central Branch of the city’s public library system, the Civic Center is the heart of Newport Beach.
This is a unique opportunity to display artworks in a serene, ocean-view setting that attracts Newport Beach residents as well as tourists from around the world. The prior four phases of this exhibition have delighted and enriched visitors with the works of world-class artists both local and international.
Selected artists will receive an honorarium of between $2,500 and $6,000, and works will remain on display for approximately two years with installation planned in May 2020 and de-installation scheduled for June 2022.
The selection process is being facilitated by Arts Orange County. Submit here: https://artsoc.slideroom.com/#/permalink/program/52621
