Art Show Details
SculptureWalk is an exhibit of original outdoor sculptures displayed year around in downtown Sioux Falls, South Dakota, a progressive community of 150,000.
SculptureWalk is a 501c3 non-profit volunteer organization and all money raised goes directly into the program.
The sculptures are owned by the artists and loaned to the exhibit. This will be our 6T year. All sculptures are insured for liability and physical damage. We actively promote the sale of sculptures to the public and 45 sculptures (33%) were sold during the first three years. Ten sculptures have been leased. SculptureWalk receives 25% on sold and commissioned works.
Sculptors may submit up to two original sculpture entries.
All SculptureWalk sculptors receive a travel reimbursement amount up to $500 per sculpture for delivery of the sculpture in May, and up to $500 for sculpture pickup in April if the sculpture does not sell during the year, and if the sculptor is not returning for SculptureWalk 2010 (explained in the Call to Sculptor). The formula is up to 50 cents a mile roundtrip if traveling to Sioux Falls, and up to $500 for shipping expenses if sculpture is shipped to Sioux Falls. Two nights accomodations at the Holiday Inn City Centre in downtown Sioux Falls is also provided on delivery weekend in May.
Most of the sculptures will be displayed on 3' or 4' high quartize pedestals, 25" to 60" sculptures look fantastic on these pedestals. Larger sculptures will be placed on concrete pads. We ask sculptors to secure steel plates to the bottom of the sculptures because all sculptures will be welded down for security and safety - Photos on right show examples of a pedestal with "A Book for Everyone" sculpture by James Haire, and concrete pad with Susan Geissler's "The Potato Man".
Our objective is to have a well balanced exhibit with all styles, types, materials and sizes of sculptures.
All sculptures need to be made of durable material for the year-long outdoor weather and constructed with safety in mind for display in a public setting.
