The Public Art Committee of Johnson City, TN is seeking pieces of leasable outdoor sculpture to be installed for two years in and around Founders Park in downtown Johnson City.
BUDGET: $2,000 lease fee (2-year lease period) PLUS hotel accommodations for one night
ELIGIBILITY: Sculptors age 18 or over and living in the United States
DEADLINE: February 28, 2021
The program seeks original art works that may be functional or nonfunctional, temporary or permanent work in any media suitable for outdoor public space.
This sculpture exhibition, primarily located in Founders Park, is part of a larger greenway vision for the city. The greenway includes areas of pollinator plants and sites for public art, in addition to functional items such as benches, planters, educational kiosks, an outdoor events facility used by various vendors like the local farmers market, and bike racks. The greenway plan is visualized as both symbolic and practical: feeding culture and commerce between the community and university, as well as physically nurturing the environment by providing a habitat that is beneficial to all.
All sculpture must meet the following basic requirements:
Installation dates are May 15-30, 2021. Installation must stay in place until May 2023. Johnson City will prepare the site and provide staff and heavy equipment (i.e. crane or forklift) for installation.
Selected artists are responsible for transportation of their work to and from the site and are encouraged to be on site to oversee installation.
Artist has full legal title and copyrights to the sculpture while on temporary loan to the City.
Artist shall pay the Johnson City Parks & Recreation Foundation a fee of twenty percent (20%) of the sale of their work while on exhibit or within six (6) months thereafter. At the conclusion of the exhibition, the Public Art Committee may recommend one or more works be purchased by the City for inclusion in Johnson City’s permanent collection.
