The Public Art Project in Vincennes, Indiana was formed in 2019 with the goal of bringing public art into the City of Vincennes. A consortium of four local galleries manages the project: Art Space Vincennes, LLC (project director); Northwest Territory Art Guild Gallery (Indiana Arts Commission grant recipient); Open Gallery; and Shircliff Gallery (part of Vincennes University). Since 2014, these galleries have collaborated on the First Friday Art Walks, which have contributed to an ongoing revitalization of the Main Street area. This new initiative is designed to bring art out of the galleries and into a public sphere where a wider audience can be reached. The galleries are assisted in this project by a committee of art professionals and community members representing a variety of stakeholders.
The Public Art Project presents an opportunity for sculptors from across the nation to submit up to two (2) entries to the First City Public Sculpture Exhibition of large-scale public sculpture to be installed in the City of Vincennes. Sculptures will be on loan for a period of three years, at the end of which time they will be picked up by the artists and new works will be rotated in. Artists will receive an honorarium totaling One Thousand Five Hundred Dollars ($1,500.00) to help defray costs of transportation and installation. The honorarium will be distributed in three installments over the exhibition loan period.
Up to two sculptures may be entered. Entry fee for first sculpture is Twenty-Five Dollars ($25.00). Entry fee for second sculpture is Fifteen Dollars ($15.00).
