The Chicago Sculpture Exhibit is a non-profit that promotes art by exhibiting large-scale sculptures in Chicago neighborhoods.The CSE mission is to provide art to the public on an everyday basis. We hope to install at least 50 professional sculptors’ artworks throughout Chicago neighborhoods in 2019. Artwork will be installed in May 2019 and will run one year through April/May 2020. A cash award of $1,500 will be given to artists chosen to participate. Artists and their work will be promoted in project materials and as part of a media outreach strategy. Assistance with the installation of work will be provided upon request. Locations for artworks are determined by size and type of base necessary. Only the highest quality work will be considered for installation.
