CALL FOR SCULPTURE -- Frankfort, KY
Josephine Sculpture Park Summerstage is a collaborative initiative that integrates the performing and the visual arts in a unique outdoor setting.
The creative team announces a national call for a large scale sculpture (approx. 10'-20' / existing or new) to become the focal point of Josephine Summerstage's production of William Shakespeare's "As You Like It" in June 2013.
The production will explore the various aspects of love experienced by the characters, and the ways in which nature can be more 'civilizing' than urban environs. The work should relate to these themes in some manner (we welcome the artist's interpretation) and accommodate actor interaction during performances.
The sculpture must be on location at JSP by May 1, 2013 and be suitable for outdoor exhibition for a minimum of one year. Installation by professional JSP staff and small artist honorarium will be provided (up to $1000). Deadline for submissions is Jan. 31, 2013.
Interested sculptors please email 1-3 images and a paragraph about how the sculpture meets the above criteria to email@example.com. Please identify subject of email as "JSP APPLICATION".
