The Decatur Artway kicks off another year as Decatur’s outdoor gallery, featuring five selected sculptures scattered throughout the city of Decatur. Sculptures will be displayed on temporary loan for two years, creating a dynamic rotating collection of public art around town. An interactive online map will permit public engagement and increase accessibility, and a plaque at each installation site will detail information about the artist and the sculpture.
The Decatur Artway is presented by the Decatur Arts Alliance in partnership with the Decatur Tourism Bureau and the Decatur Downtown Development Authority.
Selected artists will be awarded an honorarium of $2000. The installed work may be available for sale. Artwork sold as a result of the Decatur Artway will be subject to a 20% commission, which will be deducted from the purchase price and retained by the Decatur Arts Alliance.
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. We will only accept existing and ready to install works.
Please note–if the submitted work has been selected and confirmed for another exhibition before October 15, 2022 please contact the Decatur Arts Alliance as soon as possible.
