The Downtown Boone Development Association is seeking two public art sculptures for the downtown Boone sculptures sites.

The Downtown Boone Development Association established the Public Art Program to help enhance the downtown Boone central business district through the incorporation of sculpture and artistic streetscape improvements in the downtown area.

This annual program is designed to give sculptors an opportunity to display large-scale work in a pedestrian-friendly, downtown setting that supports a lively arts community. By providing a place to exhibit, the DBDA hopes to encourage arts activity within the community and provide the atmosphere and opportunity for artists to exhibit their work, share their talents, and communicate their diverse visions with residents, visitors, friends, and neighbors in downtown Boone.

A $1,000 honorarium will be awarded to each of the chosen artists.
The Jurors of the Downtown Boone Public Art Exhibit are members of the DBDA Design Committee. Decisions will be made by April 10, 2018.

The following information must be submitted for a sculpture to be considered for the 2018 – 2019 Downtown Boone Public Art Exhibit:
• Photos of the sculpture
• Dimensions and weight of the sculpture
• Date of commission
• A brief description and list of the composite materials
• Estimated value of the sculpture

If your piece is chosen by the DBDA Design Committee you will be contacted and a contract will be composed in relation to the
specifics of your piece.

Installation will begin the week of May 30 or soon thereafter with all pieces installed June 20.
