The Baytown Sculpture Trail continues for 2023 with a new juried exhibit of original outdoor sculptures displayed year-round in the Arts, Culture, and Entertainment (ACE) District in historic Downtown Baytown, Texas. Baytown is a suburb of Houston and the 5th largest city in Harris County with a population of around 82,000. Harris County itself is the 3rd largest county in the United States.
Artists may enter up to 5 pieces. The fee for the first two submissions is $25 each.
The call is open to professional and amateur sculptors of all backgrounds.
Each sculptor selected for this 12-month exhibition will receive a $1,500 honorarium per sculpture chosen. Sales of any work in the exhibition will be subject to a 30% commission so price your artwork accordingly. Additionally, exhibition sponsors will have the option of leasing the sculpture for display at their business location for an additional year. The 30% commission applies to the lease as well.
There are two awards: Best of Show and People’s Choice. The Best of Show award of $1000 will be awarded by October 1, 2023. The People’s Choice selection will be awarded at the end of the exhibition period in March 2024. The City of Baytown will purchase the People’s Choice Award winner at a sales price not to exceed $20,000.
