In 2017, the Keller Public Arts Board implemented a rotating public art program for outdoor sculptures in the newly updated Old Town Keller West area. A $1,500 honorarium is available for five pieces selected by the Board for the fifth year of the program. The City of Keller invested over $4 million in improvements for the Old Town location, including: the addition of approximately 170 parking spaces; construction of a linear pedestrian promenade; improved streetscaping and landscaping; addition of outdoor seating and community areas; and installation of 11 concrete sculpture pads. Old Town is home to an eclectic blend of restaurants and small businesses that, in combination with the public improvements, attract a variety of visitors and provide great exposure for art in the area. For 2021, the Public Arts Board will select up to 5 sculptures for a two-year exhibit beginning in June 2021 and will host the fourth Keller Art Walk event on November 13, 2021. Artwork will be for sale for the duration of the exhibit with a 25% commission collected by the City of Keller.
Applications for the 2021 Call are being accepted through the CaFE website only, and will be accepted through March 20, 2021. Each sculpture submitted for consideration requires its own application and should include up to 5 images. Five applications per artist may be submitted. For your convenience, you may review and print the guidelines and application here.
