OWENSBORO, KENTUCKY

Located in Western Kentucky, along the banks of the Ohio River, Owensboro is characterized by small-town ambience supported by a strong foundation of educational, economic and cultural opportunities typically associated with much larger metropolitan areas. A progressive arts community includes three museums, performing arts center, symphony orchestra and theatres of drama and dance. Ranked as the third largest city in Kentucky, the local economy includes a mixture of agrarian, manufacturing and service industries. Owensboro has a progressive industrial development/tourism attitude among its business, government and civic leadership.
   

The Owensboro (Kentucky) Public Art Commission (OPAC) is seeking professional artists or teams of professional artists to design site specific monumental outdoor sculpture. Seven commissions totaling $380,000 may be awarded. Additional sponsors are probable and will be listed on the OPAC website at www.opublicart.org. The goal of this project is to begin a collection of monumental outdoor sculpture which will enhance the visual environment of the community.
