Attention artists: 12 pieces will be chosen for SculptureWalk Chelsea series

 

Chelsea Area Festival & Events (CAFE) announced a call for art for the 2019-2020 SculptureWalk Chelsea series. Celebrating its 10th year, SculptureWalk Chelsea is a rotating, outdoor sculptural exhibition showcased throughout downtown Chelsea, Michigan.

Through a juried selection, 12 sculptures will be chosen. The winning artists receive a $750 award along with a year-long highly visible platform to display their work. Sculptures will be available for sale, with 70 percent of the proceeds going to the artist.

SculptureWalk Chelsea has been revitalized thanks to a minigrant award from Michigan Council for Arts & Cultural Affairs (MCACA) and administered by The Arts Alliance. CAFE is the project manager in collaboration with the City of Chelsea/DDA, Chelsea District Library and the Chelsea Area Chamber of Commerce.

Chelsea District Library, as part of their sponsorship support has made a financial commitment for two installations to be located on the Library premises as well as providing free Docent tours. “We have been a partner with the SculptureWalk since its beginning … last year we were very excited to be able to give one of the pieces a permanent home at the entrance to the library!” said Linda Ballard, Assistant Director.

The application deadline is Feb. 17.
