CREATIVE GUIDELINES:

Works should not exceed 12 feet in height, although special cases may be allowed.

 
Works will be placed on the ground rather than on concrete bases and need to have their own base.

 
It should be understood that this is a town-sponsored exhibit, so the work should be thought of in terms of a small town center, rather than art museum.

 
There is no specific theme so as to welcome a wide variety of subjects and styles.

 
Works in all media will be welcome.

 
Colorful works will be welcome.

 
Interactive (but safe) works will be welcome.

 

Kinetic (but safe) works will be welcome. 

 
Politicized work will not be welcome.

 

EXHIBITION DETAILS:

What makes this show special is it is the first phase of 4 phases to the sculpture park.  There is a $2500+ stipend for the 2 year loan with the option to for the town to buy your piece at anytime during the show. And this is an excellent way to have your piece viewed by many passing by. This park is in the center of town.

JURORS:

This is truly a community effort.  The jurors will be 5 all together. One member from each of the committees on the town council, education and selectman’s boards. Also all the students of Burlington will have one voice/vote for their top 10 sculptures. There will also be a contest amongst the students to create a logo design for the park.  The president of NESA will be advising the jurors.
