The Burlington Sculpture Park (BSP) Committee has announced a new ‘Call to Artists’. In conjunction with The New England Sculpture Association, the Sculpture Park Committee is seeking new sculptures for summer 2022 installation.
The BSP is looking for large-scale outdoor works of art that will delight art lovers of all ages. Works from artists of diverse backgrounds are welcome. The Committee is especially interested in interactive pieces that the public can safely enjoy, for a two-year exhibition.
Havoc the dog, and the Love Birds sculptures will be staying in place. The Committee is purchasing Havoc, and the Love Birds were a gift to the town from resident Maureen Wall, who donated them in honor of her parents, Thomas and Florence Murray.
The current sculptures were leased for two years starting in the summer of 2020. The BSP Committee is raising funds for the purchase of some of the sculptures but most will be returned to the artists and new sculptures will be displayed in their places. By replacing sculptures every two years, the BSP Committee hopes to keep the park fresh and exciting for residents and visitors to town. Residents and business owners interested in sponsoring a sculpture may contact the BSP Committee through the Burlington Sculpture Park website. Prospective artists and their representatives can click here to answer the ‘Call to Artists’. Residents are encouraged to share this link widely to attract the most talented artists possible.
