Call for Work: Flaming Sculpture Walk
In conjunction with the 2018 Western Cast Iron Art Alliance’s 6thannual Conference in Granite City IL. We are posting a call for “Flaming Sculptures” to be displayed for a one night “Sculpture Walk” exhibition in conjunction with the WCIAA Conference. This exhibition will be the evening of Friday October 5 happening concurrently with a performance iron casting event and gallery exhibitions. 6-10 pieces will be selected for this juried exhibition. Individual artists and artist teams are welcome to apply. Existing works or proposals are welcome. There is no application fee for this exhibition. The intent is for artworks to be stand alone forms that DO NOT require the use of a furnace or molten metal. Artworks should be welded steel and refractory objects that may shoot flames, glow or otherwise incorporate fire in their design. Bonfires or burn down structures are not appropriate for this exhibition though wood fires in resilient structures are acceptable. Artworks must be safe for public display and fire must be containable.
Conference will provide: 1-100lb bottle of propane
110 electricity for their artwork.
4’x4’ display site
Artist must provide: Burners
Proof of safe operation
