LOS ANGELES, CA – RFP – Cooler Grand Park

In RFP on February 2, 2016 at 10:38 pm

As winners of the Goldhirsh Foundation’s My LA2050 Grants Challenge to make Los Angeles the best place to play, this summer Grand Park will pilot the installation of a permanent shade structure featuring the design of a local artist at the Park for Everyone in Downtown Los Angeles. Grand Park’s Olive Court, a highly trafficked central gathering space for park events & weekly food truck events (22K DTLA residents & employees a year).  Visitors consistently request additional shade particularly for our most vulnerable visitors; children and elders. Adding shade areas will increase capacity and enhance the comfort of the 1M people who access Grand Park annually to play, enjoy quiet green spaces and attend free events in downtown LA. The theme of the design should reflect the park itself and its role in civic life in Los Angeles County.

ELIGIBILITY: This call is open to emerging and established professional Los Angeles based visual artists who are legally authorized to work in the United States (per U.S. Department of Labor). Info Meeting Date: Wednesday, February 10, 2016 (Time/Location TBD). Please check our website closer to the date for more information on time and location.

BUDGET: $15,000

DEADLINE: 5:00 PM (PST) Friday, February 26, 2016

QUESTIONS: Alejandra Cisneros,
