PROJECT SUMMARY – ARTAROUND ROSWELL 2021

Roswell Arts Fund and the City of Roswell, Georgia Government invite artists to submit proposals of existing and new outdoor art works for consideration for ArtAround Roswell 2021, a Sculpture Tour; a temporary, monumental art installation to be installed at various outdoor sites in the City of Roswell, Georgia. Proposals selected through this call will be considered for exhibition during an 11-month tour from May 2021 – March 2022.

ArtAround Roswell 2021 showcases diverse and varied sculptural works, bringing joy, and improving quality of life to Roswell’s public spaces. This year, the theme for consideration for exhibition is about CONNECTION. Panelists and artists are asked to submit their proposals that feature connection –

For example:

• How does the art connect to its environment?

• How does the art connect to the place? Perhaps to history?

• What is the connection between the audience and the work?

Sculptures will be selected and installed throughout the city, including within existing parks and historical downtown Roswell. Sites may be publicly or privately owned. Existing sites and sculptures can be viewed at Art Around Roswell Tour – Roswell Arts Fund.

This invitation is extended to all qualified artists with no entry fee. Roswell Arts Fund seeks to have a diverse and inclusive selection pool that represents the diversity and vibrancy of the Roswell communities.

Artists will receive a $2500 stipend for the loan of their work, paid in two installments ($1250 upon execution of contract, and $1250 when the artwork is deinstalled). All sculptures are available for purchase to the public unless otherwise stated but must remain installed for the entirety of the exhibition and tour.

ArtAround Roswell is a collaboration between the Roswell Arts Fund and the City of Roswell. The sculptures are hosted by the City of Roswell Recreation, Parks, Historic and Cultural Affairs and Private business owners.
