Artists are invited to submit work – existing or conceptual – for the fifth annual Sculpture on the Lawn exhibition, an outdoor display featured at the entrance to the Orange County Administration Center (201 S. Rosalind Ave.) in the heart of downtown Orlando, Florida, where the works are visible to approximately 10,000 people daily. Up to three sculptures will be selected for display from October 2019 to September 2020. One of the sculptures will be selected from a student or emerging artist, if suitable.
Honorarium: $3,500 for a one-year loan ($3,000 upon installation and $500 upon removal)
Eligibility: Professional artists, students, and emerging artists
Deadline: July 1, 2019
Selected artists must transport the artwork to the site on the specified date and install it with minimal assistance, then remove the artwork after the exhibition.
There is a 6-foot minimum height preference. The sky is the limit for the maximum height. Orange County provides 12-by-12-foot concrete pads. Sculptures must be firmly secured to the pads.
Orange County will insure the artwork up to its stated value or $50,000, whichever is less, for theft or major vandalism. The artist will be responsible for any repairs needed due to fabrication defects or reasonable wear and tear of the object in a public location.
Sites and Safety
While artistic quality is very important, works will be reviewed for durability, safety and appropriateness to the site. Artworks must be structurally sound and able to withstand an outdoor environment in a largely unsupervised area that is not protected from weather or curious viewers. Orlando has a subtropical climate that is hot and humid with intense sun and seasonal heavy rains and hurricane-force winds. Avoiding potential problems such as deteriorating rust and fading should be considered.
Sales of the works will be encouraged and promoted. Any sales inquiries will be forwarded to the artist or designated agent. No commission will be charged. Sculptures must remain on site until September 2020.
The three main considerations are creativity, site appropriateness and durability.
What to Submit
Up to 6 images of finished works and conceptual drawings can be submitted. If the proposed project is not a finished work, artists need to provide information to assure the Selection Panel of what it will look like and that it will be completed and installed as designed. Make sure to indicate if you are a student or emerging artist.
How to Submit
Submit online ONLY through the CaFE system. There is no charge for artists to register with CaFÉ or submit an application.
