The Sculpture Center invites all sculptors, including students, currently living and working in our greater region of Ohio, its contiguous states, W. PA (west from Harrisburg), W. NY (west from Syracuse), and Ontario, Canada, to submit recent work for After the Pedestal, the summer juried exhibition of small sculpture. This always critically well received exhibition is juried by a curator of national and international reputation.
Sara O’Keeffe is an Associate Curator at the New Museum. She was part of the curatorial teams that organized “Trigger: Gender as a Tool and a Weapon” (with Johanna Burton, 2017-2018), and the “2015 Triennial: Surround Audience” (with Lauren Cornell and Ryan Trecartin, 2015). More about Sara here.
