Call To Artists 2021-2023 Sculpture Exhibit

Happy Valley is a thriving, multicultural community of 21,700 neighbors. Many residents identify as Asian (22.7 percent), of two or more races (5.9 percent), and/or Hispanic or Latino (4.4 percent). Moreover, our beautiful nature areas, safe neighborhoods, and vibrant business community contribute to making our town a wonderful place to call home.


The Happy Valley Sculpture Garden at City Hall is a mechanism for integrating outdoor art into public spaces, promoting public participation and interaction with artists and artwork, and preserving the local cultural environment and livability.


The Happy Valley Public Art Committee seeks up to six artists to display sculptures in the July 2021 through June 2023 Sculpture Garden Exhibit. Submissions may include proposed, partially, or fully completed sculptures.


An online application must be completed through the website Submittable. First time users of Submittable will be prompted to create an account. When preparing your application, please be prepared to submit: 

  • Artist contact information
  • Up to three images (front, back, side) per sculpture submitted. Images should accurately represent the sculpture in scale, media, and color
  • Sculpture information, including physical specifications, materials used, and a short description.
  • Optional: current resume and demographic information

A video tutorial is available to assist you in completing an application. In this tutorial, program staff completes a sample application and explains the submission process. The City may assist in language translation and accept non-digital applications by request.


Artwork will be selected by the Happy Valley Public Art Committee based on locational context, artistic merit, maintainability, and size/weight criteria. Proposed, partially completed and fully completed artworks may be considered. Accessibility restrictions will be considered in reviewing sculptures.


The Art Committee seeks to exhibit artwork through inclusive processes. Applications are welcomed from people of all backgrounds, abilities, and disabilities. Students, emerging artists, and artists from Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) and other historically underrepresented communities are strongly encouraged to apply.


This exhibition opportunity is open to artists residing in Alaska, California, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. Artists must transport sculptures to and from the City at their own cost.
