The Decatur Arts Alliance announces a call for artists for sculptures to be placed in the city of Decatur, Georgia as part of Phase VI of the Decatur Artway. Sculptors are encouraged to be a part of this two-year sculpture exhibition. The sculpture must be available for the duration of the two-year contract. All submissions must be professionally constructed of durable materials which will withstand the elements. No maquettes or renderings will be considered for selection. The Decatur Arts Alliance will only accept works that are existing and ready to install. All durable outdoor media are encouraged.
Selected artists will receive an honorarium of $2,000. The installed work may be available for sale. Artwork sold as a result of the Decatur Artway VI will be subject to a 20% commission, which will be deducted from the purchase price and retained by the Decatur Arts Alliance.
The Decatur Arts Alliance will, in partnership with the Decatur Visitors Center and the Downtown Development Authority, market Decatur Artway VI including, but not limited to, printed walking/cycling/driving sculpture tours, online tour with a mobile app, and docent-lead tours for visitors and residents. The Decatur Artway VI opening will include an artist talk which will be videotaped and used on the mobile app and website.
