Greater Greenwood Arts Council Seeks Artists for On-loan Public Art Exhibit


The Greater Greenwood Arts Council in cooperation with The Greenwood Parks & Recreation Department, Greenwood, Indiana, invites artists to participate in our 2021-2023 juried, on-loan, public art exhibit. This open call is for outdoor three-dimensional art. The selected artists will be awarded $3,000 for the two-year loan project.

Polk Hill Trail was built in 2004 as part of a greater Trails and Greenways Master Plan. It is adjacent to Smith Valley Road which is a gateway to the city of Greenwood. Surrounded by a golf course, residential homes, apartments, and condominiums, it leads to a pedestrian bridge and Craig Park. Many viewers of the artwork will be vehicular traffic; however, the trail is a multi-use trail.

Artist must be 18 years of age or older. Artists must own the rights to the sculpture, which must be available for the duration of the exhibition. Selected artists must be willing to enter into an Art Loan Agreement with the City of Greenwood, Indiana, an Indiana municipal corporation. Artwork may be made available for purchase.

Project Scope and Requirements
