The Rosen Sculpture Competition and Exhibition is an annual national juried competition presented by the Turchin Center for the Visual Arts, as part of An Appalachian Summer Festival. The nationally recognized program has showcased contemporary American sculpture in outdoor settings across the university campus for the last 37 years.

In honor of the competition’s 38th anniversary, we invite you to join sculptor Christopher Meyer, our competition juror, for an engaging outdoor tour of the ten sculptures chosen as finalists for this year’s event. With a rich background in iron work, Meyer’s work ranges from non-objective to representational sculptural objects, sculptural installations, and cast-iron performance work, often focusing on the interaction between the viewer and the work. 

The walking tour on July 13th will culminate at the Schaefer Center, where the award winners will be announced during an awards reception, featuring a complimentary boxed lunch.
