Calling All Artists!

Calling All Artists! Unique Chance to Travel to Erfurt, Germany
Posted on 05/15/2019

Would you like the chance to create a sculpture that will permanently live in our sister city of Erfurt, Germany?

Erfurt city leaders are reaching out to Shawnee and their 10 additional Sister Cities to send one sculptor for a two week workshop in the summer of 2020 in preparation of Germany’s Federal Horticultural Show in 2021. The festival will be held in Erfurt and is a high honor to the city and its residents.

During the workshop, the chosen artist will be commissioned to create a sculpture made of wood, metal, or stone (materials provided) and will receive 1000 euros (roughly $1100 U.S. dollars) as payment.

Artists need to fill out this application and provide photos of three to four previous works. The greater theme of the workshop is “Paradise” in efforts to bring together the international community made possible by the Sister Cities partnerships.

We hope to send an enthusiastic and capable artist who will represent the City of Shawnee in Erfurt in 2020! Artists 18 years of age and older are welcome to apply.

Please send applications and pictures of previous works to The contest will close August 1, 2019. Finalists will be contacted for further review and a winner will be named in September 2019.
