Any person or organization with a Lawrence, Kansas address is welcome to apply, given that their project is designed to meet the criteria of the Community Arts Grant program.

33rd Annual Outdoor Downtown Sculpture Exhibition (ODSE)

Works selected for the Outdoor Downtown Sculpture Exhibition are displayed throughout Lawrence, including downtown and along Massachusetts Street. In addition to being a popular annual exhibition for locals and visitors, artists gain hands-on experience developing and installing artworks in the public realm.

The program is open to all artists 18 and older. All entries must be original works and may not have been shown previously in this exhibition. Selected Artists will receive a $1,750 honorarium for each selected or commissioned work exhibited for one year. Works that explore an expanded notion of art in the public realm are encouraged!

The complete call for art and online application can be found here.
