Mid-South Sculpture Alliance seeks artists’ proposals for a temporary sculpture exhibition made possible with funding by the Lyndhurst Foundation. There are no mandated themes for the artwork, but MSA encourages the submission of exciting, vibrant, and energetic work. Pieces must be completed and available for delivery by September 2019. The application requires images of up to three (3) recent works, an artist statement and biography, and a completed entry form.

Recent trends show that most exhibitions prominently feature male artists, with only a fraction devoted to the work of female artists; as such, PAC supports this showcase, because it enhances the accessibility of diverse artists in the creation of vibrant public spaces.

Artwork Selection Panels

Every project has a different artwork selection panel comprised of Chattanooga citizens with a specific interest or expertise including: artists, community and business representatives, architects, landscape architects, art and/or design professionals, and City of Chattanooga representatives. This panel reviews submissions for a public art project and makes recommendations to the Public Art Commission.

Serve on an artwork selection panel.
