“The garden is a beautiful outdoor space that celebrates dynamic works of art,” said Jay Scott, executive director. “It is a pleasure to offer year-round sculpture installations to the thousands of people who visit TSKW each year.”

Over the past few years, the sculpture garden has hosted the work of nearly two dozen artists including Anja Marais, Lauren McAloon, Jackie Sanchez, Jim Racchi, Susan Rodgers, John Martini, Eliza Proctor, Maya Godlewska, and others.

Selected works will be installed for three month periods from October through December 2011, January through March 2012, April through June 2012 and July through September 2012. The garden has two distinct areas for exhibiting works, and the work of two artists or teams of artists will be selected for each three-month exhibition period.

Proposals may include work that is already realized. Site informed or site specific proposals are especially encouraged.

Proposals should be sent or delivered to the Armory office, c/o Jay Scott, executive director, and must be postmarked by August 15, 2011. There is no fee for submission. Proposals will be reviewed by the TSKW Sculpture Garden committee and accepted artists will be contacted by September 15 to arrange and finalize all exhibition details.
