The Allied Arts Council in conjunction with the City of St. Joseph invites regional, national, and international sculpture artists to enter a sculpture for the 5th annual St. Joseph Sculpture Walk! The Sculpture Walk is an exhibit of beautiful outdoor sculptures displayed for one year in downtown St. Joseph, Missouri.
Selected sculptures will be placed in downtown St. Joseph where they will remain for the June 2018-May 2019 exhibition. Sculptors receive a $500 honorarium if their piece is selected. The sculptures are also entered into a competition to compete for up to $13,000 in cash prize awards. Each sculpture is for sale to the public. Additionally, one sculpture is purchased to become a permanent part of St. Joseph’s public art collection.
Interested sculptors should visit the Council’s website, www.stjoearts.org, for more information and how to apply. The deadline for submission is February 5 with notification of acceptance on or before March 5, 2018.
The Sculpture Walk has seen constant growth throughout its first four years and is expected to become even more popular from May 2018- June 2019. Patrons from various cities, states and countries have visited downtown St. Joseph to view the annual exhibits.
Public support is needed for a successful program. Anyone interested in supporting the program should contact the Allied Arts Council at 816-233-0231. An opening reception for artists, sponsors, and the public will be held June 9, 2017.
