The City is seeking proposals from artists, artist teams and galleries for the selection and commission of artworks for Phase II of the Rotating Public Art Exhibition Program. Selected sculptures will be installed for 24 months at eight highly-visible locations within the City of Pasadena, California. Two of the six loaned artworks may reflect sustainability, water, conservation, electrical, or recycling themes.
Launched in 2011, the Rotating Public Art Exhibition Program seeks to create an outdoor art gallery that enlivens the urban landscape and produces a dynamic visual experience for residents and visitors. The Program places existing loaned and newly commissioned site-specific sculptures on public view in neighborhoods representing all City Council Districts. Exhibition sites are unsupervised and include traffic islands, medians and smaller, more intimate parcels.
Artist honoraria are $3,000 for the loaned artworks and $5,000 for site-specific projects. Artworks must be available for installation by June 30, 2013.
The submittal deadline is 5:00 pm on April 22, 2013.
The City is hosting a public meeting to review the program and the Request for Proposals on April 2 at 6:30 PM at the Armory Center for the Arts, located at 145 N. Raymond Ave., Pasadena 91103.
