Chelsea Area Festival & Events (CAFE) announced a call for art for the 2019-2020 SculptureWalk Chelsea series. Celebrating its 10th year, SculptureWalk Chelsea is a rotating, outdoor sculptural exhibition showcased throughout downtown Chelsea, Michigan.
Through a juried selection, twelves sculptures will be chosen. The winning artists receive a $750 award along with a year-long highly visible platform to display their work. Sculptures will be available for sale, with 70% of the proceeds going to the artist.
SculptureWalk Chelsea has been revitalized thanks to a mini-grant award from Michigan Council for Arts & Cultural Affairs (MCACA) and administered by The Arts Alliance. CAFE is the project manager in collaboration with the City of Chelsea/DDA, Chelsea District Library and the Chelsea Area Chamber of Commerce.
Chelsea District Library, as part of their sponsorship support has made a financial commitment for two installations to be located on the Library premises as well as providing free Docent tours. “We have been a partner with the SculptureWalk since its beginning. Last year we were very excited to be able to give one of the pieces a permanent home at the entrance to the library,” said Linda Ballard, Assistant Director.
The application deadline is Feb. 17. For more information, email Crystal Scott at VisualArts@chelseafestivals.com or apply for SculptureWalk Chelsea at www.chelseafestivals.com/sculpturewalk.
