Call to Artists: Bethany Arts Community is accepting submissions for a large sculpture piece

Bethany Arts Community (BAC) invites artists to propose project ideas for the sculpture park we are developing on the BAC property.

The Sculpture Park
The first location for a new installation is visible from the road and has a prominent position as we grow the sculpture park. The work may be site specific, or the artist may submit an already existing piece. Proposals may be shown as photographs, hand drawn sketches, digital renderings, or models/maquettes. The sculpture committee suggests that artists visit the site ahead of time, to understand the site’s constraints, so their proposals may take these into consideration.

How to Apply:
To respond to this Call to Artists, prepare the materials listed below and submit through our online application page. Application deadline is Feb 28th.

Artist Description
Bio, resume, CV or other documents that describe the artist’s background and experience.

Statement of Interest and Initial Project Concept
Narrative describing an initial artistic concept for this site, and the processes you might use for the project. Relevant Work Samples Images of completed past work that you feel is relevant to this site.

Itemized Budget
A preliminary budget of project expenses.

Bethany Arts Community’s campus is situated on 25 serene and picturesque acres and combines a charming 1920’s period building with a later addition of a 1950’s dormitory and instructional style wing. BAC is surrounded by abundant perennial beds, expansive lawns and a fruit orchard. BAC is preserving its historic structure while providing the community with a range of accessible arts programs and creating opportunities that will draw global artists to our region. We offer children’s and adult instruction, a performance venue, multiple galleries, rehearsal spaces, affordable studio spaces, short-term artist residencies, a public sculpture garden and meditation trail.

Bethany Arts Community will unveil the very first sculpture installed on Bethany’s front lawn. Made in Westchester by Dobbs Ferry Sultz artist Malcolm MacDougall III.

An artist’s vision need not be limited to what they can personally create with their two hands, thanks to people like Malcolm MacDougall III. His company, Sultz in Dobbs Ferry, helps artists bring their ideas into reality, by welding large steel structures, casting sculptures in bronze, or whatever large job needs doing to prepare for an installation. MacDougall, an artist himself, says his sensibility helps bring out the subtleties of the artists’ intentions. One of MacDougall’s own large works was recently installed at the Bethany Arts Community in Ossining.

Join us for a reception following the unveiling along with a last chance to see the exhibit by local artists currently on display in our galleries.
