New Sculptures Sought for Raflo Park Exhibit

The Commission on Public Art is accepting submissions for the second round of sculpture installations in ArtsPARKs, the outdoor sculpture garden in Raflo Park.

Five works will be selected for the two-year installation period, which will begin in June and run through June 2020. Sculptures must be available for the entire display period and be for sale. Artists or artist teams will receive an honorarium of $1,000 per sculpture. Submission deadline is 5 p.m. Feb. 1.

A panel of three regional artists will review the submissions and select the five sculptures to be displayed. Artists will be notified by Feb. 15. Sculptures will be unveiled in a June 30 ceremony. For complete submission guidelines and instructions, go to leesburgva.gov/artsparks-call-to-artists.
