SANTA CLARITA – RFP – Canyon Country Public Art Project

In RFP on June 11, 2018 at 3:33 pm

In 1987, Canyon Country was one of four communities, with Valencia, Newhall, and Saugus, that merged to create the City of Santa Clarita. This project is intended to provide a civic art piece for the Canyon Country community which currently has an approximate population of 59,000 residents. In 2013, Fair Oaks Park, located at 17468 Honey Maple Street in Santa Clarita, California, was opened as part of a newly developed community of residencies. The park’s amenities include a basketball court, child play area, picnic tables, public restroom, and a sand volleyball court. One of the unique features of this park is the large grass field with trees planted throughout the area making it unusable for sports teams but ideal for picnicking, yoga, or finding a quiet retreat under one of the many growing trees. This park is frequented by families who enjoy the children’s playground, those who enjoy the running path, and others who stretch out in the grass field. The retreat like features of this park inspired the chosen theme of reflection, and all interpretations of, thoughtfulness, meditative, and the calm that comes with being in nature.

ELIGIBILITY: Open call

BUDGET: $25,000. Artist is responsible for all associated expenses related to design, fabrication, transportation, and installation. Please include a specific budget in your proposal.

DEADLINE: July 13, 2018
