Since 1999, White River State Park has sponsored an outdoor sculpture program that has proven to be very successful and popular with visitors to the park, and to the city of Indianapolis.
The Park is currently calling out for two sculptures that are available for installation: one to begin display on or after August 1st, and one on or after October 2nd, 2023. The length of time each piece is exhibited is 3 years. The White River State Park Commission will pay the artist a $5000 honorarium. In addition, the Park will pay up to a maximum of $5000 to help offset the actual costs of transporting the sculpture to and from Indianapolis (if mileage and receipts are provided), as well as installation and removal of the piece from the park.
Sculptures will be displayed for three years beginning on or after August 1st, 2023, and on or after October 2nd, 2023.
The honorarium is $5000 plus up to a maximum of $5000 to help offset the costs of transportation, installation, and removal of the piece (mileage and receipts must be submitted for reimbursement).
The program is open to sculptors in Indiana and the Midwest.
