Our exhibitions aim to showcase the work of our occupants along with local, regional, and national artists, organizations, and institutions. We welcome visual art in all media, including drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, installation, performance, video and new media.

Project Description:

  • Art Alley has five concrete sculpture pads, (3) three 7'x5'6" and (2) two 5'x5'. All pads are 6" high and ground level (see diagram here). Artwork must be anchored into the concrete pads unless alternative ways of installation are agreed upon. One artist will be chosen to be shown in Art Alley.
  • Proposals are invited from individual artists, curators, teams, or groups. 
  • A $1000.00 stipend will be given to the selected artist, curator, or team.

  • Artists are encouraged to insure their work while on view at Sawyer Yards.
