5. Call for Entries: Temporary Sculpture Installation
Apply By Saturday 31 May 2008
New Zealand artists are invited to submit concept proposals for the 4th Annual Temporary Sculpture Installation project at the Connells Bay Sculpture Park on Waiheke Island. The commission is for a temporary installation. The work should be sculptural in nature and created for an outdoor site in a coastal/rural environment. It is important that the proposed work is ephemeral in nature and not simply a pre-built object for sale. The work is to be installed at Connells Bay Sculpture Park. The specific site for the work will be selected by the artist in consultation with the Trustees. Note that it is imperative that the work is sufficiently robust to remain installed in a coastal/rural environment for at least 6 months. It will be exposed to rain, wind and sun.
