Kellogg Community College is seeking sculptures to install and display at various locations on the College’s North Avenue campus in Battle Creek, Michigan, as part of the 3rd Biennial Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition running through 2024.
Selected artists will be awarded a $750 stipend for general project expenses, funded by the KCC Foundation’s Art on Campus Initiative. Selected sculptures will be on display for public viewing on campus for 24 months, with the possibility open for extended installation or purchase.
Submission guidelines follow. Artists or groups of artists interested in submitting materials for consideration must email supporting materials by the May 1 application deadline to:
Art Exhibits Director
Davidson Visual and Performing Arts Center
Kellogg Community College
Selected sculptors will be notified by mid May, and installation of selected sculptures will take place between June and July 2022. Art will be displayed on campus until removal between May and June 2024.
A photo gallery featuring high-resolution images of the sculptures selected for KCC’s 2nd Biennial Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition in 2018 is available online at flickr.com/photos/kelloggcommunitycollege/albums/72157670181833177. (The 2020 exhibition call-for-entries was canceled due to COVID-19.)
For more information, contact Art Exhibits Director Penny Rose at firstname.lastname@example.org or 269-565-7961.
KCC’s campus features several courtyard locations appropriate for smaller-scale freestanding or pedestal pieces, and several 6-foot round concrete pads have been poured to accommodate larger sculptures. There may be additional locations which could accommodate larger sculptures without pads depending on installation and anchoring requirements. Photographs of poured concrete locations will be provided upon request.
The mission of the Kellogg Community College Foundation’s Art on Campus Initiative is to provide art experiences on KCC campuses for students, faculty, staff and the community. The Art on Campus Initiative curates KCC’s permanent art collection, administers the College’s DeVries Lecture Series focused on the arts, and has funded the installation of several sculptures on campus since 2012, including 10 as part of the 2nd Biennial Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition in 2018.
