Call for Artists, Out of the Box: A Juried Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition: Due June 1, 2017



Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art, Auburn University (JCSM) is one of Alabama’s leading art museums, with a growing collection of art ranging from traditional to contemporary—including outdoor sculpture! JCSM is accepting submissions from sculptors to participate in Out of the Box: A Juried Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition (Out of the Box) opening October 6, 2017.

Out of the Box is a biennial competition that began in 2013 in celebration of the museum’s 10-year anniversary. Now in our third iteration, our program continues in its goal of presenting engaging and educational works of art to our university audience and broader community, as well as actively pursuing the growth of our permanent collection of outdoor sculpture.

Artwork chosen for display in this year’s exhibition will be installed on the museum grounds until October 6, 2018. This call for sculpture is open to all artists, age 18 and older. Entries must be received by June 1, 2017.
