Wildflower Sculpture Park: Call for Artists
December 9, 2018
The Wildflower Sculpture Park invites applicants for its 2019 Sculpture Exhibition. Selected sculptures for this outdoor exhibition may be in any media and need to safely withstand all weather conditions. The location is the Wildflower Sculpture Park situated in an active hiking area in front of a popular dog park at Essex County South Mountain Reservation, Maplewood, New Jersey. Installation areas include a 5 x 5-foot concrete pad with secure metal loops, a large grassy field, or woodland. The yearlong exhibition opens May 25, 2019 and runs through April 5, 2020.
While the Curator of The Wildflower Sculpture Park and South Mountain staff will oversee and, at times assist if needed, the development and installation of the selected artwork, the artist is responsible for installation, any necessary maintenance, and removal of the work. An honorarium is included for selected artists. Essex County will broadly publicize the exhibition and provide an opening ceremony. Signage for sculpture will also be provided.
Deadline for applicants is February 1, 2019.
