Re: how does one create a proposal for public sculpture?

Thanks for the tips. I was wondering though, why a sculptor would take the time and money to actually make up a clay maquette before one of the sketches was approved? It seems like a lot of work just to get in the running. That being said, if one was to make a clay maquette how big does it need to be? I would want to make one big enough to have enlarged if I were chosen so that I wouldn't need to make another one! I appreciated seeing the scanned maquettes and will check out the web site. I wonder how important it is for a sculptor to have had previous commissions to show in order to get a new commission or can one just show his or her own work.? if they need to see previous commissions it seems like a catch 22; How do you get your first commission to show them if they require proof of your experience as a sculptor capable of doing commissions?
