Call for Artists, Ernie Royal Memorial Sculpture

Call for Artists, Ernie Royal Memorial Sculpture

This Deadline Expired: Friday, November 13, 2020

WEST RUTLAND, VT- The Carving Studio and Sculpture Center seeks artists to design a marble sculpture honoring Ernie Royal (1917-1994), Vermont’s first African American restaurant owner and the first black member of the National Restaurant Association Board of Directors. The marble memorial will become part of the Rutland Sculpture Trail, a collection of public sculpture planned for completion and placement in this historic Vermont city.

This ongoing collaboration has produced eight sculptures to date and aims at installing three a year over the next several years. Leading the initiative are Green Mountain Power, MKF Properties, Vermont Quarries and the Carving Studio & Sculpture Center. Funding for each sculpture is provided through a combination of individual and corporate donations and grants.

The maquette is to be sculpted in clay, to be reproduced in plaster and translated into marble. The finished sculpture will be carved at the Carving Studio and Sculpture Center.

To apply for this opportunity, please send your resumé/CV, statement/proposal and digital image (jpegs) or slide portfolio (up to 10 images) to info@carvingstudio.org or The Carving Studio and Sculpture Center, P.O. Box 495, West Rutland, VT 05777. Application deadline is November 13, 2020.
