CALL FOR ENTRIES / SCULPTING OUTSIDE THE LINES

FOGGY BOTTOM OUTDOOR SCULPTURE EXHIBIT

OPEN TO GRADUATE ART SCHOOL STUDENTS IN THE WASHINGTON DC, VIRGINIA, AND BALTIMORE METROPOLITAN AREAS

Sculpting Outside the Lines will be the third biennial exhibit of outdoor sculpture in the Foggy Bottom Historic District, Washington, DC. Arts in Foggy Bottom, a project of the Foggy Bottom Association, sponsors the exhibit. The goals of the Exhibit are to (1) enrich the cultural environment of the Foggy Bottom community by providing exposure to the visual arts, especially sculpture; (2) create educational opportunities for residents, non-residents and students as they relate to the visual arts; and (3) draw the attention of people who live outside of Foggy Bottom to this unique, historically-significant residential neighborhood.

Curator Laura Roulet will select approximately 15 sculptures to be sited on private property, with 2-3 of those works chosen from this open call for student entries. Artists whose work is chosen will receive an honorarium of $1,000, divided into two payments of $500 at installation and $500 at de-installation. Applicants may find a map of previous sculpture locations at:  http://www.foggybottomassociation.com/arts/sculpture-exhibit-tour-map/
