KETCHUM — The city of Ketchum invites sculptors to showcase their work for the 11th Annual Art on Fourth outdoor sculpture exhibition next summer. The selected artwork will be featured in downtown Ketchum along the Fourth Street Heritage Corridor — a pedestrian-friendly street with widened sidewalks, benches and designated sites for artwork. The deadline for submissions is March 9.
The Art on Fourth Exhibition has evolved into a significant attraction during the city’s summer tourist season — displaying artwork by diverse artists ranging from local residents to nationally known sculptors. Past exhibitors include Steve Jensen, Rod Kagan, Robert Kantor, Gwynn Murrill, Will Robinson and Boaz Vaadia. The exhibition is organized and curated by the Ketchum Arts Commission whose mission is to integrate arts and culture into the community’s life.
Selected sculptors will receive a $2,000 stipend; there is no fee to apply. Artists may enter as many sculptures as they like for consideration. The call for sculptors, which provides detailed information on the submission process, can be found at www.ketchumidaho.org/arts. It is open to all artists, regardless of state of residence.
