SUNY Oswego Outdoor Sculpture Initiative, 2021-24

SUNY Oswego seeks proposals for outdoor sculpture for the school’s main campus. Seven artists will be chosen to install artworks in a centrally located lawn area adjacent to SUNY Oswego’s Campus Center. Selected works will be on view for a three-year exhibition and become part of SUNY Oswego’s Campus.

Application Deadline:
Applications are due April 15th, 2021, 6PM EST. Late proposals will not be accepted. Announcement of accepted artworks by May 15th, 2021.

Eligibility: All artists, 18 years of age, are welcome to apply.

Submission guidelines:
Proposals can be for existing or new work. Each artist can submit up to three proposals however, only one proposal from an artist can be accepted.

Design Considerations:
The site of installation is a highly trafficked pedestrian area of the SUNY Oswego main campus. It is totally open to the elements and SUNY Oswego can be prone to very harsh winter weather conditions including high winds. Each sculpture will be sited on it’s own round 8’ diameter concrete pad. Accepted sculptures must be designed to be securely bolted to this pad. Also please note installation pads will have no access to electricity, independent lighting, etc.

Please note for the duration of exhibition (excluding travel to and from Oswego) all works will be insured and indemnified by SUNY Oswego.

Each artist will be awarded a one-time stipend of $2,000. This stipend is to cover the cost of all materials, transportation, installation, de-installation, and artist fees.

Please direct all questions via email to either Benjamin Entner at or Michael Flanagan at
