Veterans Memorial Park Sculpture, Call for Artists
The Town of Yountville is searching for a sculpture for permanent display in the beautiful Veterans Memorial Park in Yountville as part of the town's Public Art Walk. The Veterans Home of California~ Yountville is the home of the largest Veterans Home of its kind in the country and shares a deep history and is a source of pride in our community. The Veterans Memorial Park is undergoing renovation and will reopen in early 2017 with a fresh look and larger emphasis on it being the “Veterans Memorial” Park. This sculpture will be the most prominent feature along with newly placed flag poles, concrete inscriptions and interpretive signage that ensure the park lives up to its name.
We are calling all outdoor sculpture artists to submit entries for this project. The budgeted commission for this piece is $20,000 which includes design, construction and installation. Sponsorship funding will be considered by the Town for this project.
The sculpture must be one-of-a-kind and embody the spirit of United States Military Veterans past, present and future. The sculpture will be on permanent display and owned by the Town of Yountville.
Interested artists are encouraged to visit www.townofyountville.com/veteranssculpture to learn more. The deadline for entry is March 15, 2017.
