https://www.icccia.com/outdoor-exhibition-opportunities.html

The 8th International Conference of Contemporary Cast Iron Art invites artists to submit work for 2018 ICCCIA Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition. This juried exhibition will display 10 to 13 large-scale sculptures throughout the Lackawanna Heritage Valley and the areas surrounding Scranton, PA. All accepted works will have been created by registered participants of ICCCIA.  Artists are encouraged to consider the conference theme, "Post Industrial Iron: Divergence, Dialog, and New Directions." The goal of this exhibition is to showcase sculptures that relate closely to the Lackawanna Heritage Valley’s industrial history. The 2018 call for entries welcomes submissions from locally, regionally, nationally and internationally exhibiting artists. The sculptures selected for the 2018 ICCCIA Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition will be exhibited in three distinct locations throughout Lackawanna Heritage Valley from May 28, 2018 to May 30, 2019.

Exhibition locations:
The Lackawanna River Heritage Trail (LRHT)  - LRHT is a linear, interpretive path. It not only connects communities, but it’s also the spine of the Lackawanna Greenway.  In addition to its uses for health, fitness, recreation, socialization, enjoyment of the outdoors, alternative transportation and access to the river, the trail also provides a close view of important remnants of the region’s history and culture. Confluence: Art on the Trail is the result of a collaborative effort among Keystone College, Keystone Iron Works, Lackawanna County Department of Arts and Culture and the Lackawanna Heritage Valley.  Aptly named for the confluence of the Lackawanna and Susquehanna Rivers, as well as the coming together of arts, culture, the environment and diverse organizations, this endeavor was made possible by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Railroad Station #1 - This location offers one pad for outdoor sculpture.  It is located at the railroad station #1 in East Stroudsburg, PA.  The site will be of the 2018 ICCCIA performance festivities during the conference.

Railroad Station #2 - This location offers one pad for outdoor sculpture.  It is location at the railroad station #2 in Tobyhanna, PA.  The site will be part of the 2018 ICCCIA performance festivities during the conference.
