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.

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.
