The Orange County Arts and Cultural Affairs office is accepting submissions for their fourth annual Sculpture on the Lawn exhibition.
Selected sculptures will be featured at the entrance to the Orange County Administration Center, located at 201 S. Rosalind Avenue [GMap] in Downtown Orlando. According to the Call to Artists release the works are visible to roughly 10,000 people a day.

The theme for this year’s installation is “Diversitastic,” with an exclamation mark. Diversitastic! welcomes large-scale sculptures that “celebrate diversity in our communities and the interweaving of different backgrounds, cultures, and religions.” This supports the first-ever FusionFest (Website) event that Orange County Arts and Cultural Affairs head, Terry Olson, is hosting on November 24 and 25; a two-day food and culture festival in Downtown Orlando.
Submissions are judged on three criteria; creativity, site appropriateness, and durability. Selected artists will be awarded a $3,500 fee for the one-year loan of their artwork to the County.
Deadline for applications is midnight Sunday, August 4. The full application can be found HERE.
