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 location for the installation is visible from the road and has a prominent position as we grow the sculpture park. We are looking for a large sculpture that can be seen at a distance. No taller than 15 feet. 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 location prior to submission to understand the site’s constraints and so their proposals may take these into consideration.
We are looking for a 2 to 3 year sculpture loan. We want to keep the park dynamic and showcase multiple artists over the coming years.
A $2,000 honorarium will be provided to cover transportation and installation. BAC will provide a concrete slab and $200 towards a crane for installation.

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 beautiful gardens.
