Call for Artists: Erie, PA Sculpture Walk


Call for Artists: 2021 Sculpture Walk
Erie Arts & Culture and the Erie Downtown Development Corporation are initiating a public art project designed to be highly visible and create pedestrian-scaled environments for the enjoyment of residents, visitors, and the public at large. We are soliciting Requests for Proposals from artists or artist teams who have established reputations for design, execution, and installation of original outdoor sculptures. Sculptures will be displayed from June 2021 through August 2023 in Downtown Erie and along the Lake Erie Bayfront. For the first wave of this initiative, a minimum of eight and a maximum of 15 sculptures will be leased from artists and installed as temporary public art exhibitions.

Program goals include:

Enhancing the visual landscape in Downtown Erie and along the Lake Erie Bayfront with an exhibit of original and unique pieces of art.
Stimulating interest in Erie Arts & Culture’s public art initiatives and adding cultural and creative value to the area.
Attracting visitors, residents, and businesses to the area.
Serving as the foundation for developing an ongoing program throughout the City of Erie.
