Community & Services

Orange County’s Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs has extended the deadline for the call to artists for its fall Art in the Chambers exhibition and annual Sculpture on the Lawn exhibition. The deadline for submissions for both is now Sept. 3, 2018.

Deadline: Applications, resumes, images and other materials must be submitted electronically by midnight, Monday, Sept. 3, 2018 to

Artists are invited to submit work – existing or conceptual – for the fourth annual Sculpture on the Lawn exhibition, an outdoor display featured at the entrance to the Orange County Administration Center (201 S. Rosalind Ave.) in the heart of downtown Orlando, Florida, where the works are visible to approximately 10,000 people daily.

The theme of “Diversitastic!” has been added to this year’s exhibition, welcoming large-scale sculptures that celebrate diversity in our communities and the interweaving of different backgrounds, cultures and religions.

Sculpture on the Lawn is open to experienced professional sculptors as well as students and emerging artists who specialize in the design, construction and installation of outdoor sculptures. Up to four sculptures will be selected for display from October 2018 to September 2019. One of the sculptures will be selected from a student or emerging artist, if suitable.

The Art in the Chambers program presents two-dimensional visual art exhibitions in the Commission Chambers on the first floor of the Orange County Administration Center. Exhibitions are rotated three times a year, and the art is selected by the Public Art Review Board.

The “Diversitastic!” theme supports the inaugural FusionFest, November 24 and 25, 2018, a free two-day celebration in downtown Orlando, supported by Orange County Government.
