Call for Sculptures is Open

FIGMENT is now accepting proposals for the NYC 2015 Summer-Long Sculpture Program

FIGMENT is a free, annual celebration of participatory art and culture that began on Governors Island in 2007. It has since expanded to ten cites in three countries on two continents. In New York, in addition to the FIGMENT NYC Weekend EVENT, FIGMENT has hosted an Interactive Sculpture Program on Governors Island since 2008.


We invite you to submit a proposal for this year’s Sculpture Program. We intend to select 3-5 large-scale interactive sculptures that are daring, creative, and durable. The work must survive the elements for four months and withstand constant interactivity with the public. We intend to offer each chosen sculpture a budget of $3,000 - $5,000. However, if your vision exceeds this budget and you are driven to reach your goal, we can collaborate with you to help raise the additional funds.
