Sightlines 2019-2021
By South Bend Museum of Art

U.S. National Deadline: May 12, 2019 – The South Bend Museum of Art (SBMA) is seeking large-scale 2D and 3D artwork for long-term display in Sightlines, a collaborative project between SBMA and Century Center. The two year exhibition will highlight the work of six new artists. Indoor and outdoor sites for the work are available and will be considered for accepted work.

Sightlines is open to any artist. Any large-scale 2D and 3D artwork will be considered.

  • Indoor sculptures and 2D artwork (paintings, framed photographs, etc.) will be mounted high on interior walls for security purposes (via anchors in grout). Indoor work can be of any media.
  • Outdoor sculptures will be freestanding and installed on grass or cement. Works can be steel, bronze, wood, stone or synthetic materials, and should be substantial enough to stand up to the elements and limited public interaction for the 2-year period.
  • All artwork (indoor and outdoor) will need to withstand exposure to sunlight over the 2-year period.

Artist submission review and selection will be done by representatives from SBMA and Century Center.

Artists will receive a $1000 stipend for a selection of 1-3 artworks ($500 on delivery/ $500 on pick up) and be featured in a modest printed piece documenting the project (printed in 2020).
