Moab ArTTrails First Annual Sculpture Exhibition

October 14th, 2017 marks the launch of MoabArTTrails First Annual Sculpture Exhibition! With strong community patronage and support from the City of Moab and Grand County, Moab ArTTrails is pleased to invite artists to apply for consideration to be featured in this premier downtown exhibtion. Installation, opening artist festivities will coincide with the Red Rock Arts Festival and Street Fair in mid October. 

Up to ten artists will be chosen to display sculptures along a walking path through central Moab for the period of one year from the time of installation October 14, 2017. View the newly installed art in a walking tour with artists around the art trail, and submit your votes for the artwork that Moab gets to keep! Artists may submit up to 2 pieces for consideration and selected artists will receive a $500 honorarium and two nights accomodations. 

In recognition of the benefits that public art brings to the culture and economy of the communtiy, Moab City and Grand County have committed to purchasing a piece from this exhibition valued up to $10,000 for the permanent collection. Through the duration of the exhibit, residents and visitors will be encouraged to vote. The winner will be the “People’s Choice” and will receive a $1000 award. The Ballot for peoples’ choice will include a narrative section which can help guide city planners in the feedback for development of the public collection and the public spaces that are important to community and deserving of artistic commemoration.
