Jan. 15 proposal deadline

Beacon 3D 2015 announces its call for sculptors for the third annual exhibition, from May 15 through Oct. 15, 2015, consisting of outdoor sculptures sited at various locations on Main Street in Beacon. Actively engaged sculptors living and working in the Hudson Valley who would like to be considered for the event should contact Eleni Smolen, director of Beacon 3D, at [email protected] or 917-318-2239 for an application.

Artists do not need to fabricate new sculptures for the exhibition. The deadline to submit a proposal is Jan. 15, 2015.

Beacon 3D 2014 was an exhibition of 12 sculptures at six locations along Main Street. The WordPress website, beacon3d.org, features the artists’ statements and professional photographs of their installed sculptures. In 2014 Beacon 3D was the recipient of the Dutchess County Executive’s Arts Award for Art in Public Places, a program of Arts Mid-Hudson.

In 2015 Beacon 3D looks forward to improving signage and including an audio app that will give each participating artist 2 to 3 minutes of time to talk about their work in the exhibition. It will also give contributing sponsors a brief highlight.
