Artists are invited to submit appropriate artwork(s) for the 2018/19 San Diego Botanic Garden (SDBG) Sculpture in the Garden Exhibition. SDBG receives over 250,000 visitors each year. Over the years, the Sculpture Exhibition has grown in reputation as well as sales. Please note, SDBG will not approve sculptures that require a crane to install/de-install. SDBG staff will be available to assist with loading and transporting sculpture to locations, installation and de-installation. Installation is tentatively scheduled for early May 2018, the opening reception is in June (tbd), and de-installation is April, 2019.


BUDGET: None. Artist is to deliver, install and de-install. Up to two SDBG staff members are available to assist with installation and de-installation if needed. SDBG adds an additional 35% to your price as retail price (plus applicable tax). If your work sells, the artist is expected to provide a replacement piece to be installed immediately, similar in scale to the original, for the balance of the exhibition. SDBG provides insurance on all artworks up to $10,000 per artwork for the duration of the exhibition.

DEADLINE: January 19, 2018
