Artist Submissions Open for Public Art Landmarks

The Glendale Library, Arts and Culture Department on behalf of the city of Glendale’s Arts and Culture Commission has announced that artist submissions are now open for the Public Art Landmarks project.
As part of the city’s arts and culture initiatives, up to 10 long-term to permanent artwork installations will be commissioned, developed and established over the course of the next few years. The objective of the Public Art Landmarks project is to create world-class public artwork in a diverse range of mediums that are designed to engage the community, showcase the cultural diversity of the city and enhance the various civic and public spaces. The application portal is currently accepting submissions through Friday, Jan. 19, at 5 p.m.
This specific Request for Qualifications encompasses three different project opportunities throughout the city, strategically placed to focus on public accessibility and interactivity, including Montrose Circular Benches, Palmer Park Basketball Mural and Patterson Avenue/134 Tunnel. Each location calls for its own unique artistic mediums utilizing highly imaginative and forward-thinking approaches.
Selected artists and artist teams will be asked to demonstrate creative applications to support the building and activation of a community interconnected by its public art. Applicants are encouraged to review the opportunities and consider how their own practice relates to the conceptual and visual demands of the space, as well as how their art might address the stated project goals.
Applicants may choose one or multiple public artwork opportunities for which they feel they can develop strong concepts and visions. A shortlist of artists will be selected from the first round of applicants to move on to the next stage of developing concepts to present to the Glendale Arts and Culture Commission.
