Nitty Gritty

Land(ing) Art is open to all artists in the North Bay. We're looking for medium to large sculptures which will be sited for the public to enjoy, with sales encouraged by the artists' information and prices displayed. Sculptors are exempt from vendor fees.

Sculptures will be juried, with 15-20 sculptures selected based on the following criteria:

  • Creativity/Aesthetics
  • Sound construction and anchoring system to assure the art will stand on uneven terrain.
  • Preferably made with recycled materials
  • Size: each sculpture site will be approximately 10′ x 10′ but exceptions could be made.
  • Sculptures must be safe for the public to walk around and to touch.
