Job description

Artists are invited to participate in the Oskaloosa Sculpture Tour. The Oskaloosa Sculpture Tour is a function of Fine Arts and Cultural Events (FACE) of Mahaska County, a nonprofit that promotes the arts and artworks in and around Oskaloosa. We plan to install 11 sculptures throughout Oskaloosa in 2021.
Artwork will be installed in late May 2021 and will be on display one year through May 2022. A cash award of $1,200 will be given to artists chosen to participate, $1000 after installation and $200 at pickup. Artists and their work will be promoted in project materials and as part of a media outreach strategy. Assistance with the installation of work may be provided upon request. Locations for artworks will be determined by the size, subject, and appropriateness to its location. An experienced art selection panel will select original sculptures for the Oskaloosa Sculpture Tour. The artist retains ownership of their 3D work and agrees to loan it to the exhibition. Only the highest quality work will be considered for installation. Artworks must be accurately valued between $2,000-$12,500 for this exhibition; the jury will be the final judge as to meeting this requirement.

Qualifications or requirements

Professional and student sculptors are invited to submit existing sculptures for consideration. Artists must be experienced with the design, construction and installation of outdoor sculpture.

Works will be selected by the Oskaloosa Sculpture Tour Selection Panel. The Panel will use the following selection criteria:

Suitability for family viewing
Display of high quality technical skill, imagination, innovation
Suitability for outdoor display in adverse weather conditions
Soundness of construction, durability and safety of artwork
