The City of Roswell, Georgia invites artists to submit proposals of existing outdoor art works for consideration for ArtAround Roswell 2017, a Sculpture Tour; a temporary art installation exhibited at various outdoor sites in the City of Roswell, Georgia. Proposals selected through this call will be considered for exhibition during 2017. The planned dates for the exhibition is from April 22, 2017 – December 31, 2017.

ArtAround Roswell is a multifaceted annual Arts experience accompanied by monthly performances, music, dance, and other special events and has been extremely successful during 2016, its inaugural year.  Interactive activities include a scavenger hunt, photo contests, quizzes and voter’s choice ballots, as well as promoting public art and the artists through ArtAround Roswell’s website and Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages.

Eleven outdoor sculptures will be selected and installed in key locations throughout the city. These include parks, historical downtown Roswell, and one roundabout. One piece of sculpture will be purchased as a permanent work of art for the City of Roswell by the Roswell Arts Fund. Additionally, two Voter’s Choice cash awards will be presented to the top two favorite sculptures in the amounts of $500.00 and $250.00 respectively.  All artists will receive a $2500 stipend for the loan of their work. Sculptures will be available for sale to the public if the artist chooses, but must remain installed for the entirety of the nine months of the exhibition.

ArtAround Roswell is a collaborative effort coordinated by The Roswell Arts Fund and The Department of Recreation and Parks, Historic and Cultural Affairs, City of Roswell.  Applications will be accepted through August 22, 2016, electronic submissions only.  Artists will be selected and notified by September 30, 2016.
