The Keller Public Arts Board is seeking entries for the 2019 Old Town Keller Rotating Sculpture Program. The program will feature outdoor sculptures in the Old Town Keller area, home to an eclectic blend of restaurants and businesses that, in combination with recent public improvements, attract a variety of visitors and provides great exposure for art in the area. A $1,500 honorarium shall be awarded for installation, exhibition and removal of the selected sculpture for a two-year period. One Best in Show winner shall be awarded an additional $500.
The Public Arts Board will review and select up to six sculptures submitted by Texas artists for a two-year exhibit, and will host its third annual Keller Art Walk, an art and music festival on Saturday, November 16, 2019. The selected sculptures shall be for sale for the duration of the exhibit with a 25% commission collected by the City of Keller.
All sculptures must be ready for installation by June 1, 2019, be “family appropriate” and pose no risk to public safety. Sculptures must be made of materials that can withstand the harsh Texas weather and require no maintenance by the City of Keller.
All submissions must be made through CaFÉ from Jan. 25 through Mar. 22, 2019.
