The Lyons Arts and Humanities Commission (LAHC) and the Town of Lyons are thrilled to announce a “Call for Artists” for entries in a public art collection now known as the heARTS of LYONS Outdoor Arts Collection. We wish to judiciously expand the current outdoor collection of art and sculpture through the careful selection of an additional eight pieces.
heARTS of LYONS is funded through the Lyons Community Foundation and supports local artists while driving tourism. The sculptures chosen through this program are installed for two years in town. Artists can submit multiple sculptures for consideration.
To be considered for this two-year commitment, artists may submit online up to three pieces for juried consideration for a one-time $30 submission fee. The application is available online. Applications are due January 31.
The Town of Lyons and the LAHC have identified permissible locations for artwork and will assist with the installation of mounting blocks and placards for each piece.
Artists are paid a $750 honorarium (paid in two installments) for the two-year placement. Artists may choose to sell the work being showcased if it is replaced by another piece in a timely fashion during the two-year contract period.
