The Tucson Jewish Community Center’s “Call to Artists” for its annual 2021-2022 Sculpture Garden exhibit is now open!
In 2009, the Tucson J established a Sculpture Garden on its campus with a four-fold purpose in mind: to craft a public space that celebrates the appreciation of sculpture; to create an atmosphere of tranquility; to promote educational opportunities; and to enhance community fellowship. The convergence of art and audience in the Sonoran Desert region encourages visitors to relax, converse, meditate and contemplate.
The J’s Sculpture Garden currently contains more than 40 sculptures by local, national and international sculptors, ranging from a few feet tall to over 40 feet in height. The landscaped garden showcases outdoor sculpture, offers views of the surrounding mountain ranges and provides a meditative environment within the city limits. An annual show opening, monthly art tours, as well as private tours provide the entire Tucson community an opportunity to engage with sculpture in a beautiful setting.
This opportunity is open to all artists. The J J’s Sculpture Garden features the work of both established and emerging artists and welcomes work in a variety of styles. Work need not have a religious or spiritual theme.
There is no entry fee. Applications must be submitted by Friday, May 14 by 5 pm.
