The Rosen Outdoor Sculpture Competition & Exhibition is a national juried competition presented annually by the Turchin Center for the Visual Arts on the campus of Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina. Made possible by the generosity of longtime arts supporters Martin and Doris Rosen, this national, juried competition continues a long-held tradition of showcasing the best of large-scale, contemporary American sculpture.
Each year, ten sculptures are selected for exhibition, and are situated in outdoor, public settings across campus. A cash prize is awarded to the artist whose work is chosen as that year's Rosen Award winner. Since its establishment in 1987, The Rosen has become an integral part of An Appalachian Summer Festival, the university's annual multi-arts celebration, with the announcement of the Rosen Award winner coming during the festival's annual Sculpture Walk with that year's juror.
Awards & Honoraria
Ten finalists will be selected for installation on the Appalachian State University campus. All finalists, whose works are installed on campus, will receive a $1,000 honorarium to offset transportation and incidental expenses. The Rosen Sculpture Competition will provide installation equipment and will cover the cost of installation and lodging during installation and deinstallation. One artist will be named as the Martin & Doris Rosen Award Winner and will receive a cash prize of $5,000 plus a weeklong residency, with stipend, within Appalachian's Department of Art during the 2009-2010 academic year. Awards and Honoraria total $15,500. In addition, the Rosen Sculpture Competition offers the following: a sales program; a full-color catalog; a digital walking tour created with Podcast technology; promotion as a featured exhibition; and full archives on the competition's website located at www.rosensculpture.org.
