The Avenues of Art program is a public project; all proposed artworks are screened to ensure durability and artistic merit prior to acceptance. Fragile (e.g. limestone), dangerous, inappropriate artwork…will not be accepted. Artwork will be displayed outdoors. There are many spaces available for the rotating display, so you may enter up to two pieces each year.
