ArtSS Sculpture Competition is a biennial juried outdoor sculpture contest by which ArtSS selects and procures sculptures for the public realm of our city.

In 2012, ArtSS hosted an international contest for outdoor sculpture designed to encourage children’s play. Over 120 entries from around the world were submitted for consideration. A panel of illustrious judges from the art world selected six winners from an amazing pool of entries. Strict adherence to engineering and safety rules ensured the sculptures will be safe while amazing creative and visual originality will make the Playable Art Park a prime destination for children to bring their imagination.
