Apply now for WCU Outdoor sculpture contest

Written by 

Artists must submit applications by Friday, Aug. 13, for a chance to win Western Carolina University’s 2010 Outdoor Sculpture competition.

Five winners will receive a one-year exhibit on Western’s campus and a $2,000 honorarium. A reception, inauguration and awards ceremony to honor recipients will be held Friday, Oct. 22, in conjunction with a red carpet celebration of the Fine and Performing Arts Center.

The sculpture contest is open to artists over the age of 18 working in the Southeast, and there is no application fee.

“Through this competition, we aim to enhance our students’ education by fostering an atmosphere of inquiry and discovery by intentionally planting thought-provoking artworks,” said Denise Drury, curatorial specialist with WCU’s Fine Art Museum

A selection committee will choose five works to exhibit on the FAPAC sculpture lawn. It is specifically seeking intimate works that will fit five predetermined locations on the lawn.

The application and guidelines can be downloaded at fineartmuseum.wcu.edu.
