The exhibition is a sculpture-on-the-street project modeled after others around the country that unites the business community and the arts to attract visitors, energize streetscapes and create great public gathering spaces.
A generous donation from the Havana Business Improvement District will fund the $750 artist stipends to transport and install artwork along Havana Street, and will fund cash awards amounting to $1,000 for People’s Choice, $750 for first place, $500 for second place and $250 for third place.
In addition, the Aurora Art in Public Places Program will purchase a sculpture from the exhibit, which will be added to the city’s public art collection and remain permanently displayed in the district.
Interested artists should visit CaFÉ at www.callforentry.org to apply; the deadline is midnight July 6.
