Cape Cod Open Sculpture Invitational 2024

Prospectus – Outdoor Exhibition


The Cape Cod Museum of Art (CCMoA) and the New England Sculptors Association (NESA) will invite all 3D artists to submit to our second joint Juried Sculpture Exhibition on the 22-acre campus of the Cape Cod Center for the Arts (30 outdoor sites identified). The 2024 theme is open and will be juried by representatives from the Cape Cod Center for the Arts and a guest juror (to be determined). In addition to the outdoor sculpture exhibition, there will be a 10-week indoor exhibition at the CCMoA (20-25 works). There will be two separate calls for art; one for the outdoor exhibition and one for the indoor exhibition. This is the prospectus for the outdoor exhibition.
