GLENDALE —The City of Glendale aims to become an arts and culture destination in the Los Angeles metropolitan region. Reflecting on its diverse population, history, and innovation in public spaces, the City seeks to further enrich the day-to-day experiences of the community with an emphasis on the importance of arts and culture.
As part of this initiative, up to ten long-term to permanent artwork installations will be commissioned, developed, and established over the next few years. These landmark installations will be strategically placed throughout the City in locations that focus on public accessibility and encourage public engagement and interactivity.
The purpose of these artwork opportunities is to create world-class public artwork in a diverse range of mediums designed to engage the community, showcase the City’s cultural diversity, and enhance various civic and public spaces. Interested Artists and Artist Teams are encouraged to review the opportunities and consider how their practice relates to this projects conceptual and visual demands and how their art practice might address the stated project goals. When applying to the RFQ, Artists and Artist Teams may apply for one or multiple opportunities they feel they can develop strong concepts and visions.
