Golf the Galleries

The Sheldon Art Galleries is pleased to announce that “Golf the Galleries,” a playable, artist-designed, nine-hole mini golf installation that premiered in 2018, will return in the summer of 2019 with a newly-designed, family-friendly course situated in the beautiful Sheldon Art Galleries space! The exhibit will run from May 31 through August 11, 2019.

A call for design proposals for nine individual holes is now open! Artists, architects, architectural and design firms, collaborative art teams, schools, landscape architects and other creatives are invited to submit.

Proposals are due by midnight on December 2, 2018. Click here for guidelines and submission forms.

Winning artists will be chosen by a committee of Sheldon staff. Winners will be asked to design and fabricate their hole designs to specifications outlined in the Request for Proposal. Each winning proposal, artist or team will receive a $600 honorarium and $1,000 towards materials and expenses. In addition, a $1,000 prize will be awarded for “Best Hole.”

Individual golf hole sponsorships are available. Call The Sheldon’s Development Department at 314-533-9900 for more information.
