Juror: James Drake

Curator: Terry Suhre

Appalachian State University's annual Outdoor Sculpture Competition, now in its fifth year, is made possible through the generosity of Martin and Doris Rosen. The Rosens continue to be a major force contributing to the success of An Appalachian Summer and cultural programming at Appalachian State University.

The sculpture competition, on view year round at the Appalachian State University campus, is a dynamic component of the visual arts on campus. The winner of the Competition receives the Rosen Prize, while the other nine finalists receive honorariums to facilitate the installation of their individual works.
