Bayview Campus Sculpture Series / Calls & Submissions

April 15, 2024

Organization Name: Bayview Foundation

Organization Location: Madison, WI

Type: Calls & Submissions


Bayview Foundation and the Bayview Public Art Selection Committee invite artists and artist teams to submit public art qualifications for the design and installation of a series of sculptures (8-10). The series of sculptures will be designed as a seek-and-find experience, starting with a larger sculpture to be located within Bayview’s new playground structure. This initial sculpture – that doubles as a play/climbing piece – will lead participants throughout Bayview’s campus where they will find 8-10 smaller sculptures at various locations. Bayview’s new playground structure is an abstraction of a fallen Bur Oak tree, which is the dominant species of the Oak Savanna, Southwest Wisconsin’s native landscape. The sculptures created as a result of this commission are intended to be of animal species that live in and around the Bur Oak tree. The series aims to foster interaction and create a sense of wonder while providing education about the native landscape.
