Call for Art: 2019-2020 SculptureWalk Chelsea

Chelsea Area Festival & Events (CAFE) recently 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.

Through a juried selection, 12 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 percent of the proceeds going to the artist. 

SculptureWalk Chelsea has been revitalized thanks to a minigrant 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. 

The library, as part of its sponsorship support, has made a financial commitment for two installations to be located on the library property 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.
