SculptureWalk, a year-long community arts project in which juried sculptures are installed at 12 locations in historic downtown Chelsea, is celebrating its 10th year. Artist are invited to submit entries for the 2019 season. Through a juried selection, winning artists receive a $750 award and a yearlong, highly visible platform to display their work. Sculptures will be available for sale, with 70 percent of the proceeds going to the artist.
Chelsea District Library, as part of their sponsorship support, has made a financial commitment for two installations to be located on the library premises, as well as providing free docent tours. “We have been a partner with the SculptureWalk since its beginning,” says assistant director Linda Ballard.
