Sculpture Walk Peoria Seeks Artwork for Exhibition

Sculpture Walk Peoria is currently accepting submissions for an outdoor sculpture exhibition in 2017.

Sculpture Walk Peoria is an annual, juried, outdoor exhibit offering local, regional, national, and international sculptors opportunities to showcase and sell their creations, while enhancing the cultural environment of Peoria and providing opportunities to educate the public. The 2015 Sculpture Walk Peoria had a goal of launching with 10 sculptures and our successful fundraising supported 15 sculptures for the inaugural sculpture walk.  2016 Sculpture Walk Peoria has 16 sculptures. Their goal for 2017 Sculpture Walk Peoria is 17 sculptures to be installed in June 2017.

All sculptures are to be for sale. As of November 1, 2016, we have sold 4 sculptures from 2015 Sculpture Walk Peoria and 1 sculpture from 2016 Sculpture Walk Peoria.  They anticipate additional sales.

Sculptures will be placed in highly visible locations along the newly renovated Washington Street and Adams Street in Peoria, IL, between Liberty and Elm Street in the Peoria Warehouse District. The Peoria Warehouse District has been included on the National Register of Historic Places. Peoria, Illinois is a city of 119,000 with a regional population of about 400,000, located 2 ½ hours from Chicago, 2 ½ hours from St. Louis and 3 hours from Indianapolis.

Sculpture Walk Peoria is an initiative of ArtsPartners of Central Illinois with the full support of the City of Peoria and private businesses. This is our third annual event and we are seeking professional sculpture appropriate for public viewing from local, regional, national, and international artists. Sculptures are owned by the artist and loaned to the exhibit for one year with a possible negotiated one-year extension option. All sculpture must be made of materials that can withstand harsh Midwest weather and not require any maintenance other than occasional washing with a water spray. The Honorarium is $1,500 dollars, payable $1,000 on delivery and $500 at pickup of the sculpture. There will be an additional $2,500 People’s Choice Award given to one artist in November 2017.
