Call for Sculpture
The Arts Council of Wilmington and New Hanover County invites sculptors to submit proposals for its Pedestrian Art public sculpture program. Up to 12 works will be installed at various locations in Wilmington from March 2015 for one year. The deadline for consideration is February 1, 2015.
The Arts Council of Wilmington and New Hanover County, in collaboration with Tri-State Sculptors, has installed 12 sculptures as part of the popular Pedestrian Art public art program. Curated trolley tours of the sites were held on the inaugural International Sculpture Day, April 24th, with Wilmington hosting one of over 50 events planned in 12 countries.
Be involved with the arts in Wilmington! Take a selfie shot of yourself with any of our 14 pedestrian arts pieces and post it to our Facebook and/or Twitter. Each week we will select one of our entries and post it on our Pedestrian Art website.
The Arts Council of Wilmington will also launch its Arts on Tour mobile app on April 24. The state-of-the-art technology platform will provide location-specific audio interpretation of arts venues in New Hanover County, including the sculpture installations.
The 2015 Tri-State Sculpture Conference will be held in Wilmington, October 1-4, and it was a natural partnership,” said Rhonda Bellamy, executive director of the Arts Council of Wilmington & NHC.
