Call to Artists: Bemidji Sculpture Walk 2017

Posted by

Deadline for submissions: February 1, 2017


The Bemidji Sculpture Walk is Northern Minnesota’s premiere public art venue. This year is the 19th Annual Sculpture Walk.

Submissions are juried in based on their conceptual strength, originality, and workmanship. Selected works will be installed and displayed for 12 months in highly visited and curated outdoor locations throughout downtown Bemidji.

All artwork will be advertised as for sale or loan unless otherwise specified by artist. Due to high visibility and tourism rates in Bemidji, sculptures are frequently discovered by visitors to our downtown and works are purchased each year. The BSW does reserve a 25% commission on all successful sales of submitted art which is sold during the contract year.
