Public art project seeks sculptors

LexArts, the University of Kentucky's art department and the South Hill Group have issued a call to graduate-level sculpture students across the region for Reclamation, a public-art exhibition set for June.

Selected participants will come to Lexington in June to build and display public art that will be displayed in the South Hill neighborhood, next to the University of Kentucky and downtown Lexington. The exhibit is expected to begin at Dudley Square, travel to the Centre Court retail and condo development, and then go down Euclid Avenue to the sculpture garden at The Art Museum at UK, which features the newly installed sculpture Coal Pot by El Anatsui.

Participating artists will be announced May 8, and artists interested in being considered should contact Jeremy Colbert at the UK department of art by e-mail at

The public exhibition will kick off with the June 19 Gallery Hop.
