Exhibition Opportunity

Rosemary Beach Sculpture Exhibition


RBSE is a juried outdoor public art project running from May through October 2017. Sculptural works are selected for the expansive greens and pocket gardens of Rosemary Beach, referencing and building upon its New Urbanist design history

Sculptors with documented experience in design and construction of outdoor sculpture are invited to submit their work. Locations for sculptures can accommodate works of various dimensions and presence. 

Sculptures must adhere to the following:

  • Pose no risk of injury to the public (i.e. sharp edges, slip hazards).

  • Must be able to be semi-permanently fixed to a heavy base.

  • Sculptures must not require maintenance.

  • Works must be able to withstand all weather conditions, high temperatures, humidity and salt.

  • Sculptures must be guaranteed against defects and deterioration.

  • Works on this public art platform may be touched, climbed on, etc. by the public and therefore must be safe and stable.

  • Sculptures will be viewed in-the-round.

  • Only original, complete works of art created by the artist.
