Jefferson Matters: Main Street, Tower View Team, Home State Bank and the Greene County Board of Supervisors invite you to to their seventh annual exhibit of original outdoor sculptures.
Four sculptures will be selected. Each artist, if selected, will receive a stipend of $1,000 with a chance to win an additional $500. Each selected sculptor will be paid $700 on delivery and $300 on pickup of their sculpture. Sculpture is owned by the artist and loaned to the exhibit from May 1, 2022 through November 1, 2022. During this time a public vote will be held for the People’s Choice Award. The result of this vote will determine which ONE of these four sculptures will remain in Jefferson until April 30, 2023 and will receive the extra $500. Please note: If the sculpture is removed before the specified removal period, the artist will forfeit the $300. If a sculpture is damaged while on display, it is the artist’s responsibility to fix the damaged sculpture or risk losing the final $300. You may submit up to 5 entries for jury. There is no entry fee. All sculptures need to be made of a durable material for the outdoor setting and constructed with safety in mind for display in a public setting. Incorporating recycled/up-cycled materials is encouraged but not mandatory.
