Submissions Sought for Leesburg Skate Park Sculpture

Leesburg’s Commission on Public Art is seeking design submissions for a skating-themed sculpture to be placed at the entrance to Catoctin Park, the town’s skate park. The design of the sculpture should be relevant to the Eric Brown Skate Plaza and should compliment the park environment, skaters, and other park visitors.

The call is open to all artists and artist teams in the Mid-Atlantic region. Emerging artists and artist teams are encouraged to apply. There is no requirement for previous public art experience. The selected artist or artist team will be responsible for design, production, and complete installation of the artwork, with a total budget not to exceed $10,000. The Friends of Leesburg Public Arts is providing the funding for the sculpture.

Deadline for submissions is noon on Oct. 12, and the winning artist or artist team will be notified on Dec. 12. The fully developed design will be due on Jan. 29, 2019, with sculpture installation expected in spring or early summer 2019.
