5th Annual National Outdoor Sculpture Competition & Exhibition Winners

Sculpture artists from across the nation applied to the fifth annual National Outdoor Sculpture Competition and Exhibition. Presented by the City of North Charleston Cultural Arts Department, this unique, eleven month exhibition offers established and emerging artists the opportunity to display their thought provoking, extraordinary sculptures, as well as compete for up to $14,750 in Exhibition Honorariums and Awards. Eleven sculptures were selected by the juror, Stuart Hordoner, Artistic Director of the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center. Once installed at the exhibition site, the juror then selected pieces to receive awards for Best in Show, 2nd Place, and Honorable Mention.
