Spartanburg Art Museum is seeking designs for our upcoming public art project, Go Figure, set to begin in late spring 2021. The project is comprised of 20+ six-foot-tall steel figures to be decorated and placed in public areas throughout the city of Spartanburg. This call is open to artists and collectives ages 18+ residing in SC and NC, including visual artists, sculptors, metalsmiths, architects, designers, and other creatives. There is no fee to apply and selected artists will receive a $500 stipend for labor/supplies. Visit spartanburgartmuseum.org/gofigure to download the application packet.
Go Figure is a public art project featuring our region’s best contemporary visual artists, inspired by current events and the desire to connect safely with each other again—without COVID-19, without racial injustices, and without exclusion. Our goal for Go Figure is to create a public art project that expresses how we want to re-emerge together as a community, united.
