A CONTEMPORARY SCULPTURE FOR CYPRUS

IN AUGUST 2018 ARUCAD - ARKIN UNIVERSITY FOR CREATIVE ARTS AND DESIGN, IN AN OPEN CALL TO ARTISTS, DESIGNERS, ARCHITECTS AND CREATIVE MINDS FROM ALL ARTISTIC FIELDS AND GENRES, IS PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THE ARKIN AWARD - THE PROJECT IS FOR A SITE-SPECIFIC PERMANENT WORK TO BE FOUNDED IN AN ELEVATED MOUNTAIN LOCATION OVERLOOKING THE TOWN OF GIRNE (KYRENIA) AND THE MEDITERRANEAN COASTLINE.

ON 30 NOVEMBER 2018, THE ARKIN AWARD RECEIVED ITS FINAL SUBMISSION BEFORE THE DEADLINE FOR ENTRIES. OVER 80 PIECES FROM 30 COUNTRIES WERE RECEIVED AND WE WOULD LIKE TO EXTEND OUR SINCERE GRATITUDE TO ALL THE ARTISTS, DESIGNERS, SCULPTORS AND CREATIVE MINDS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD WHO SUBMITTED WORKS TO THE AWARD.

 

THE QUALITY OF THE SUBMISSIONS MADE THE WORK OF OUR JURY BOTH PLEASANT, BUT ALSO EXTREMELY CHALLENGING.

 

AS A RESULT OF THEIR DELIBERATIONS:

 

SIX WORKS SUBMITTED BY LEO CAILLARD, MAURICE BLIK, LOTTA BLOKKER, ANGELA CONNOR, STEVE ANTHONY AND JAMES SCOTT WERE SELECTED TO PROCEED TO THE FINAL SELECTION.

 

AS A RESULT, WE WOULD LIKE TO EXTEND OUR GRATITUDE TO ALL THOSE WHO SUBMITTED WORKS BUT WHO WERE NOT SELECTED.
