San Juan Islands Sculpture Park

Reviewing Sculptures for the San Juan Islands Sculpture Park,
June 6th-August 4th 2021

The San Juan Islands Sculpture Park (SJISP) is located on beautiful San Juan Island in Washington State. It is home to over 100 unique outdoor art creations by world renowned and newly discovered sculptors. Covering 20 acres, the park includes 6 marked trails leading visitors to a gorgeous natural pond, through a wooded area and to Westcott Bay. 

The San Juan Islands Sculpture Park was founded in 1998 and it was originally called the Westcott Bay Institute for Art & Nature. The Park has evolved to offer its visitors a quality experience of art and nature working in harmony.

SJISP was founded in 1998 and it was originally called the Westcott Bay Institute for Art & Nature. The Park has evolved to offer its visitors a unique experience of art in nature and support for the artists represented there by promoting, displaying and selling their artworks.

Sculptures are rotated as new pieces become available, as existing pieces are sold and as pieces rotate out of the park after a two-year display. If chosen to exhibit at the SJISP the artist is responsible for delivering, installing and removing the art if it is not sold.

All artists are equally welcome, whether well known or undiscovered. The emphasis is on experiencing art in this amazing and unique natural setting.

You can submit works between June 6th-August 4th through “Everythingy” or by going to our web site www.sjisculpturepark.com. Questions? Call 360-506-4302

WHAT TYPES OF SCULPTURE LIVE IN THE FOREST?
INITIAL THEMES
The Sculpture Forest initially has two specific themes and some other guidelines which perform best in our jurying process. Future rotating shows will be more open ended. Each of the two overarching sculptural themes has its own devoted walking trail loop.

NATURE NURTURED
Representation of beauty in forms of natural elements, animals, plants, ecosystems, and human interaction with the non‐civilized world. Preference is for uplifting, positive messages and experiences (or neutral ones), though we will occasionally consider works that poetically evoke the dangers and implications of environmental degradation. Sculptures should be at home in a native forest setting.

WHIMSY WAY
Bring on the fun! This section of the park is devoted to releasing a sense of discovery. What will appear around the next turn of the trail? Will it make the grandparents laugh? Will it make the kids say “that’s really cool”? Is it unusual or beguiling in a relatable way? Is it fantastical or well outside the norm? These are all worthy ideas for Whimsy Way.

MATERIALS
There is a general preference for stone, some natural looking metals, and bio‐natural materials (wood, shells, antlers, etc.) in Nature Nurtured. In Whimsy Way, all materials, colors, and approaches are open ended. Sculptures should be sturdy to handle potentially appreciative hands and to hold up well in an outdoor year-round environment.

Public Art Archive

This is a call for the inclusion of public art collections in the Public Art Archive, an online database of public art. To be considered for inclusion, you must be a professional artist who has completed and installed public artwork, or an administrator of an established public art program. There is no charge to submit entries to the Public Art Archive. Public art is defined here as art that is situated in a location that is accessible or viewable by the general public and was, in most cases, commissioned by a public art entity, typically using percent-for-art or public funding. Gallery art and art exhibited inside galleries and museums is not eligible. Works of art that were commissioned and/or gifted by corporations, museums, educational institutions, private parties, and other entities may also be eligible. Permanently cited, temporary, new media, performative, rotating, and portable works may be eligible if they meet the commonly known definition of public art or civic art.

The Public Art Archive™ (PAA™), like CallforEntry.org™ (CaFE™), is powered by the Western States Arts Federation (WESTAF). The Western States Arts Federation is a nonprofit regional arts service organization dedicated to the development of an expanded awareness of the power of the arts. Much of the organization’s work is accomplished through the development of technologies that benefit the arts and the arts community. WESTAF created the PAA™, which launched in 2009 with the collections of a few pilot public art agencies. We are pleased to invite artists and collection managers to include their artworks on this premier database for public art.

Groundswell: City of Shoreline Public Art Program

Call for Temporary Environmental Artwork

As a means of fostering new interpretations of art and nature in urban spaces, the City of Shoreline Public Art Program seeks temporary artworks for display in parks (along trails, glades, meadows, and reclaimed gravel pits), especially Brugger’s Bog and Southwoods,to encourage audiences to visit these resources as well as to exercise and spend time in comparative silence. Walking, way-finding, and searching for the “hidden” artwork is a primary component of the project. Proposals will be juried by a selection panel consisting of an artist, art professional and/or collector, professional handler / engineer, additional community resident(s) and City staff. The City will promote the artwork on its website and newsletters, producing a map to encourage exploration of the area. For time and materials, selected artists are offered honoraria of $500 - $1,500 (depending on scope of project) following installation.

Although there is no deadline, the submission pool is reviewed quarterly (approximate dates: March 24, June 23, Sept. 22, Dec. 1). Artists should submit materials 2 weeks before these dates for full consideration.

For More Information, please visit City of Shoreline
