HOW TO SUBMIT APPLICATION
Please submit no more than 8 images of available works on Café (insert link). Multiple images of a work will help the selection committee understand the perspective of the work and how the work will fit into the space. Please consider submitting works that represent your oeuvre the best.
•Artists may submit up to three existing, completed sculptures. Regardless of the number of sculptures you plan to submit, only one application is needed.
•Artists must submit multiple images from different perspectives per sculpture; eight images total, if submitting three sculptures. Image size must meet requirements identified on CAFÉ. The base should be visible in at least one of the images.
•All entries must be accompanied by a description of the installation process, specific to each sculpture submitted. Pedestals, ground mounts and ready mix will be supplied for the selected entry based on the requirements submitted in their entry.
•The Lone Tree Arts Center reserves the right to reject any applications that do not meet eligibility requirements and/or are incomplete.
•Once applications are submitted on Café and are being reviewed, it is the artist’s responsibility to contact Courtney Ozaki Moch at Courtney.Moch@cityoflonetree.com if their work is no longer available.
•If selected, the artwork that is submitted on the application must be the same as the artwork that is delivered for installation in size, color, edition, etc. LTAC retains the right to reject works differing markedly from the work depicted in the digital image submitted.
•The artist is responsible for delivering their work and coordinating with LTAC. Transportation of the selected sculpture is the artist’s responsibility. LTAC will work with the artist to coordinate the best dates for delivery and pick up of the work to the site.
•If an artist’s work is selected for the Lone Tree Art Center Sculpture Program and it is no longer available, LTAC may choose to negotiate with the artist to have another one of their pieces on display. LTAC may also choose to select another artist’s work.
•Artists must submit a list of cleaning products and methods, including what cannot be used on the sculpture. LTAC will make every effort to keep the work from damage, vandalism and theft, and in the event of acts outside of LTAC’s control, the work is covered under the City’s insurance policy. LTAC is responsible for maintaining the piece throughout the exhibition and performs regular evaluations and maintenance of the installed piece.
•All work must be for sale and remain the same price throughout the show as submitted on the entry form. All work must remain on display throughout the indicated time frame of the show.
