Open Call for Native American sculptors by The Honoring Project
This Open Call for Native American sculptors by the Honoring Project, a non-profit in Wyoming, offers a commission of $100,000 for creating a sculpture for an All American Indian Days Memorial in Sheridan, Wyoming.
In 1953, Sheridan, Wyoming, was a small town of 11,000 residents. Ordinary townspeople and two Crow couples became the Founders who established the vision to eliminate racial discrimination against Native Americans through All American Indian Days. This celebration between 1953-1984, annually often reached an attendance of 4,000 Native Americans.
The All American Indian Days Memorial will honor the vision of these Founders. Interested Native American sculptors may submit an application by May 16, 2022.
