CALL TO ARTISTS // 2017-18 DOWNTOWN SCULPTURE GALLERY // DESCRIPTION

The City of Auburn invites sculptors to submit proposals for Auburn’s Downtown Sculpture Gallery.

The works selected for this public art exhibition will be on loan to the City for a period of 12 months and can be available for sale during that time.

Each selected artist will receive a $1,000 stipend. At the conclusion of the exhibition a sculpture from the exhibition may be purchased for inclusion in the City of Auburn’s permanent collection. The purchase budget is $10,000.
