We really need some distinctive conk that galleries can blow in and sound out new calls for entry (but until then):
2006 Richmond Outdoor Sculpture exhibition is indeed year two of the 2005 Sculpture Invitational. Last year was an invitational only, and this year we did not want to limit ourselves to only sculptors we were aware of. We wanted the call for proposals to reach more sculptors outside of Richmond. The name change was owing to our wants of broadening the idea and scope of the project in the future. We are extremely excited about this year's exhibition."
