Call Type: Public Art
Entry Deadline: 9/6/19
Chicago Sculpture International, in collaboration with the Chicago Park District, is seeking proposals from artists for the 2019-2020 Sculpture in the Parks Exhibition.
Works must be large scale and suitable for outdoors. They will be placed near cultural centers (field houses) within the parks, as determined by CPD. They will be installed on hardscape or softscape (grass), so artists must be prepared for either type of installation. There are no concrete pads for sculptures. Sculptures will be on view for one year, from November 2019 to November 2020 (exact dates to be determined).
Each new sculpture will receive a $2000 stipend, and sculptures retained at cultural centers from the 2018-2019 exhibition will receive a $500 stipend. Interested sculptors, including current exhibitors, must submit an application for 2019-2020 in order for their work to be considered for exhibition.
