Each of those artists will receive $5,000 as a fee for the loan of their artwork, and to offset the costs of transportation, installation, and housing. The artists will receive additional payments of $4,000 after the sculpture is installed and another $1,000 once it’s removed.

The full application for participation can be found at www.callforentry.org. There is no cost to register or apply.
