Pasadena seeks artists for rotating public art exhibition program
The City of Pasadena 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. 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. Additional information can be accessed at:http://www.cityofpasadena.net/arts. The website includes the full RFP; images, a map and brochure of the Phase I installations; and photos of all Phase II sites. Please contact the Cultural Affairs office at626.744.7062with questions.
I live for adventure! I've been in rock bands, movies, plays and on TV. I adore animals, motorcycles get my heart racing and I also have a passion for sushi and ice cream (not at the same time). I was the Queen of the 31st Occasional Pasadena Doo Dah Parade. I am also a professional belly dancer (swords are my speciality), a Polynesian/Tahitian dance student and a full-time journalist. Here, I'll share some of my life- who I meet and where I go in the music scene, as well as music news, and any other intriguing people, places and things I come across. **PLEASE NOTE: Here I will also post excerpts from press releases I receive with information on upcoming entertainment events and news.** Welcome and keep on rockin'!
