Piedmont Council for the Arts (PCA) has an opportunity for artists of monumental proportions. National, regional, and local artists alike are invited to submit original sculpture proposals to ArtInPlace for the 2016-17 season. Selected artists will receive a $1,500 stipend to install their sculptures along the roadways of Charlottesville, VA from October 2016 through September 2017.

ArtInPlace sculptures are part of a creative placemaking effort to spread arts awareness by providing the community with a wide range of artistic styles, themes, and media. The best proposals will be engaging, unique, and special consideration will be given to submissions promoting Charlottesville’s “A Green City” community initiative.

Artist may apply independently or in a collaborative group by submitting a professional resume with examples of past monumental work, contact information, photos of available work, footing requirements and method of installation for the proposed work, and a brief artist statement. Applications should be submitted no later than July 1, 2016 through the PCA ArtInPlace website, with supplementary materials sent to [email protected].

A two-jury process will be conducted throughout the month of July to select 12-14 finalists. All artists will be notified of a final decision by mid-August, and the selected sculptures will be installed in October 2016.
