Eligibility:  Artists must own the rights to the artwork, which must be available for the duration of the two-year exhibition period.  Artwork must be ready to set on our 8’ x 8’ cement pads.  The installation method for each sculpture should be welded tabs or similar easy-install method.  The exhibit is outdoors and open to the public, and because of this, certain requirements must be met in order for a sculpture to be considered for display.  Fragile or dangerous works will not be accepted.  Artwork must be available for the duration of the two-year contract, and must be constructed of durable materials that will withstand year-round Indiana weather.

Transportation: Selected artists are responsible for transportation of the artwork to and from the installation site.  The artwork must be delivered as exhibition-ready.  The university will supervise installation of the work, and will insure the artwork for the duration of the exhibit.

Submission Details:  Artists may submit up to two sculptures for consideration, but each submission will be considered separately.  Each submission must include the following:
·         A bio/resume describing your experience and exhibition history.
·         Three images of the work (front, back and one detail).
·         Dimensions (HxWxD) for each submission (the base cannot exceed the 8’ x 8’
          cement pad).
·         Stated insurance value for each work.
·         Each sculpture entry must be submitted individually
