Our Call To Artists to submit entries for this year's exhibition is now underway! The exhibition strives to enhance the quality and excellence of Rosemary Beach by complementing the architectural heritage and natural beauty of our town. Ten sculptures will be selected for display within the town center and residential areas of Rosemary Beach on our pocket parks, gardens, and expansive greens.

Rosemary Beach Sculpture Exhibition Sculpture on Display

The 2024-25 Rosemary Beach Sculpture Exhibition (RBSE) marks the fourth juried art show of contemporary outdoor sculpture on display throughout the town of Rosemary Beach. It is the signature event of this quintessential New Urbanism town located on the Gulf of Mexico along scenic highway 30A in northwest Florida, between Panama City and Destin. Architectural Digest recently named Rosemary Beach as one of the 30 most beautiful main streets in America. 

New Urbanism towns, also known as Neo-Traditional, are built according to traditional neighborhood principles that preceded suburban sprawl. It is a return to walkable paths and sidewalks surrounding a town center and public spaces where people live, work and play. 

Public art has long been a staple in many traditional towns, whether it is to honor a local hero or to bring attention to some aspect of the town’s cultural heritage. In our postmodern time, a show of contemporary outdoor sculpture in a Neo-Traditional town can uplift and inspire in similar fashion. It can encourage locals and visitors alike to view the world and their own heritage in perhaps new and inspiring ways as they engage with the personal artistic expression of each sculptor.  


The purpose of this sculpture exhibition is to enhance the quality and excellence of Rosemary Beach through complementing its architectural heritage and natural beauty with outdoor sculpture; and, to contribute to the cultural arts environment in our county and surrounding areas.


A call to artists has be made as of January, 2024. The Exhibition is scheduled to open on October 1, 2024 and close on September 30, 2025.  


Events surrounding the opening of the Exhibition will be planned for Owners and Donors. We invite you to follow us on Facebook for timely information on our events and programming.


A free printed Exhibition Catalogue with a site map will be available to guide visitors through the RBSE. An audio tour narrated by the artists themselves will be also be available through the free ‘Otocast’ smartphone app. With Catalogue and Smartphone in hand, visitors can enjoy a self-guided tour of the sculpture trail at their own pace. The free ‘Otocast’ app is available for download via the App Store or Google Play.


Private donations and in-kind sponsors fund the RBSE, a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, the country’s largest arts fiscal sponsor. The RBSE sought sponsorship from this 501(c)(3) entity in order to enable contributions to the RBSE to be tax deductible, and to take advantage of other benefits of sponsorship from an organization with a national reach such as Fractured Atlas. We invite you to visit our Donate page to learn about the various levels of sponsorship and their specific benefits (such as your name featured on a placard by a sculpture, listing in printed materials and on our website, tickets to events, and more). Contributions of any amount are also invited and welcome at any time. It is easy to donate online or via check. We thank you in advance for your support of the arts in our community.



The founder of the Sculpture Exhibition, Tom Kramer, moved last year, embarking on new adventures. Ten volunteer members serve on the Rosemary Beach Sculpture Exhibition Committee that plans and implements the Exhibition. They are, Project Director Alisa Ghazvini, Michelle Brooks, Burt Beusch, Ceil Chapman, Gary Handler, Linda Gifford, Mary Lostak, Stacy Parks and Trevor Price. Backed by the Rosemary Beach Property Owners Association (POA), the POA staff and numerous volunteers work with the committee to help mount the Exhibition.


The RBSE is proud to be a partner with the Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County for Art Month South Walton.


The RBSE is grateful for the promotional support we receive from Visit South Walton.
