Sculpture artists are invited to participate in the Village of Beverly Hills 2nd annual Sculpture in the Parks exhibit. The Village is currently seeking applications for original sculptures of a size, weight and material suited to an outdoor setting. Selected works will demonstrate the connections between art and the natural environment. The sculptures, to be selected by local artists and approved by the Parks and Recreation Board, will be on loan from the artist to the Village for three years, May 2023 through April 2026. Work submitted for Sculpture in the Parks must be: • Original: designed and created by you. • Community-friendly, suitable for viewing by all ages. • Able to stand freely or be anchored in soil; foundations/bases are not provided.
