Chicago Sculpture Exhibit - 20th Anniversary
The Chicago Sculpture Exhibit is celebrating 20 years of installing large-scale public art throughout Chicago neighborhoods.
A special prize will be awarded to three artists with the highest scores from a jury of community members and art professionals. The cash prizes will be: First Place, $5,000; Second Place, $3,000 and Third Place, $1,500. Prize money is an additional award. For CSE’s 20th Anniversary, new promotional materials are being created that will feature artists and their work materials and as part of a media outreach strategy.
We will install at least 50 professional sculptors’ artworks throughout Chicago neighborhoods in 2021. Artwork will be installed in May 2021 and will run one year through April/May 2022. A cash award of $1,500 will be given to artists chosen to participate. Assistance with installation will be provided. Locations for artworks are determined by size and type of base necessary. Only the highest quality work will be considered for installation.
