HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The University of Southern Mississippi and the College of Arts and Letters are calling for artists to enter in this year's 2018 Outdoor Sculpture Competition.

The competition seeks five outdoor sculptures that will be exhibited on campus for an 18-month time period.

This call is open to international artists or teams.

Artists will have a chance to showcase their artistic skills and have an opportunity to work with different students and give lectures.

These art sculptures will be placed in five different spots throughout Southern Miss (Hattiesburg campus). Afterwards, a selection committee will decide the final location of the selected works.

The sculptures will be installed Sept. 13-14, and will remain on campus until March of 2020.

Artists interested must be 18 years or older and have art work that is available for the entire exhibition period. Also, artwork can be of any media, however, work must be impervious to the elements and require no maintenance.

Applications for the competition must be completed by April 27 at 5 p.m. Applications must be done electronically. Interested applicants must submit an application to sculpture@usm.edu.

For additional information about the competition, visit the school's website here.
