Junebug ArtFest: 2012 Sculptor Needed

(METUCHEN, NJ) -- Metuchen's Junebug ArtFest Committee is looking for the artist who will create the FEATURED JUNEBUG SCULPTURE for the FIFTH ANNUAL JUNEBUG ARTFEST that will take place in June 2012.  Each year, the sculpture is the focal point of the Junebug ArtFest, and the unveiling ceremony signals the event's official opening.

The ArtFest has grown tremendously over these four years; this year getting full-page coverage in NJ Monthly and identified as a "heavy-hitting" event by Inside NJ.  Prominent artists are involved this year:  Sandy Skoglund and Jane Dickson are participating as guest lecturers in addition to numerous visual artists, musicians, performers, spoken word artists, and fine crafters from New Jersey, as well as neighboring states.

We are interested to name the 2012 sculptor at this time, since we would like the artist to experience the event first hand before creating the work.  The event has a strong online presence.  You can see information about it (both video and photo) at the following websites:,, and
