The Sculpture in the River Market Show will celebrate its 10th year in April. As part of that, they are rolling out a plan that encourages the public to explore, appreciate, and share public art offerings in Little Rock through social media.
The selfie with a sculpture contest will begin Saturday and continue through April 18. The concept is simple: A person finds their favorite sculpture in Little Rock, takes a photo with it, posts it using the hashtag #LRSculpture on either Instagram or Twitter.
A person must be visible posing with the sculpture in the photo. Photos taken prior to April are eligible as long as they feature a person posing with a Little Rock sculpture and use the hashtag #LRSculpture. Only photos meeting those requirements which are posted between April 1 and April 18, 2017 will be eligible.
Photos showing misuse of the sculpture will not be considered.
Winners will be announced April 20. The grand prize includes tickets to the Sculpture Show Preview Party on April 21 at 6:30 p.m. Three additional prizes will be given.
Guests attending the Preview Party will get to view and vote on the seven semi-finalist proposals for the next public monument sculpture winner to help select the top three finalists. The winner of that competition will be announced Sunday, April 23.
