Budget: $300
Deadline: 1/10/17

The City of Cedar Park Parks, Arts and Community Enrichment Advisory Board would like to invite you to become an exciting part of Cedar Park by submitting your work for display in the Cedar Park Community Sculpture Garden. Since its creation in October 2013, the Cedar Park Sculpture Garden has been met with much enthusiasm. Sculptures on display in the garden have previously sold both to private collectors and have been purchased by the City for its permanent collection. Visitors and Cedar Park residents alike have been enjoying this new addition to the City’s parks system and the City’s Parks, Arts and Community Enrichment (PACE) Board plans to continue the momentum gained in the first 3 years of the garden’s existence. At this time the board would like to invite artists to once again submit their works for possible inclusion in the garden.

The sculpture garden is situated on land directly adjacent to the very popular Cedar Park Recreation Center. Each year, thousands of visitors frequent the Cedar Park Rec Center making this location a highly visible one within the Cedar Park community. The sculpture garden features a scenic pond surrounded by a crushed granite walking trail. Sculptures that are selected for display will be placed on cement pads situated along the walking trail. The selected sculptures will be on loan and available for public purchase through September 2017.
