Reno Sculpture Festival is seeking to award up to 30 Sculptures for exhibition at Reno Sculpture Festival, May 12 – 14th, 2017 in downtown Reno, Nevada.

Eligibility: Reno Sculpture Festival (RSF) is focused on promoting and encouraging Reno-based artists, but do award grants to artists based outside the region and therefore encourage everyone to apply. RSF is primarily focused on pre-existing sculptures, but do occasionally award grants for new sculptures. Art Cars are welcome to apply. Sculptures that are build to promote K-12 in-school engagement are highly-encouraged to apply.

Specifications: Sculptures that are modular, temporary,  interactive and community based will be given priority. It is preferred that sculptures range from 6ft – 25ft in diameter, and are freestanding – but exceptions can be made.

Delivery: Selected sculptures must be ready for installation during the week of May 12 – 14th, 2017 in Reno, Nevada. They must remain in exhibition for the duration of the event. Sculptures must be de-installed immediately following the festival, although Reno Sculpture Festival strives to find extended temporary placement for sculptures in the Reno area.

Selection: All submission will be notified on March 15th that the sculpture submission was received, with grants finalized between March 15 – April 1st, 2017.
