Juror's Statement

As a curator, I am trained to see many types of art ... because a museum is a changing and contrasting place. In this competition, my purpose was mainly to select as wide a variety of pieces as I could, representing many different techniques and styles found across the country.

Appalachian State University's annual Outdoor Sculpture Competition, now in its second year, is made possible through the patronage 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. Martin and Doris Rosen provide each of the ten selected sculptors with a five hundred dollar honorarium to facilitate their individual works. From the ten participants, one artist's work is then selected to receive the Rosen Prize, a cash award of five thousand dollars.
