Call For Entry for the Sculpture Trail

Entry submissions for 2020-22 exhibit are closed.

Next Exhibition Dates: May 6, 2022 – April 27, 2023

The goals of the Cloverdale Sculpture Trail are to promote public art that is available to the Cloverdale community and visitors, bringing awareness of public art to all ages and ethnicities. Additionally to ignite the imagination and foster conversation and interaction

To bring awareness to the 2020-2022 Sculpture Trail and the exhibiting sculptors we provide the following:

  • Due to the Corona-virus, the Grand Opening Reception to meet and greet the artists will be held at a future date through Zoom.
  • Media releases. We have added a volunteer independent freelance writer to our team to increase media exposure.
  • Printed brochures distributed in key tourism areas in Sonoma County and downloadable from our web site.
  • Calendar listings including media, radio stations, art organizations, Sonoma County Tourism Bureau.
  • Listing in the Sonoma County Visitors Guide.
  • A sign next to each sculpture with artist name, sculpture title, name of sponsor. If a sculpture on display is for sale it will be noted on the sculptor sign and at our website.
  • “Sculpture spotlight” appears in the cloverdale reveille showcasing a different sculptor every few weeks and at our website.
  • Prize money

    “Best of Show” ($1,000), “First Place” ($500) and “Honorable Mention” ($250) will be awarded. Each sculptor selected to exhibit will receive $250 from a sponsor to assist with expenses. This year we are able to add $100, from a grant received for the 2020-2022 Trail, to the $250 for a total of $350.

    Video and Otocast

    We will again produce a video on the participating 2020-2022 sculptors to show at the opening reception and then viewed at our website and You Tube. A narrated, audio, self-guided walking tour with audio from the actual artists will be available through Otocast. The Trail can be explored worldwide by downloading from Google Play or Apple App Store the free Otocast app and search for Cloverdale.
