The juror will select approximately 125 sculptures for exhibition from slides of maquettes of proposed sculpture or pre-existing sculpture submitted by entrants. The selected maquettes of proposed sculpture and photographs or maquettes of existing sculpture will be exhibited at the Owensboro Museum of Fine Art, September 11 to November 6, 2005.

Prior to the public opening of the exhibition the awards consultant will assist sponsors with selections. During these consultations, resumes and proposed sculpture will be reviewed. Sponsors will have the right not to award a commission. OPAC will assist in the selection process and help facilitate the contractual process, but all contracts for the purchase or commissioning of sculpture will be between the artists and the sponsors.
