UNITED HUB – RFP – Her Art Here (Boeing 757)

In RFP on March 21, 2019 at 2:49 pm

United Hub (United Airlines) is proud to launch #HerArtHere, a first-of-its-kind contest designed to find and uplift underrepresented women artists by providing a chance to paint a canvas like no other — a Boeing 757. The designs should visually represent the vibe and spirit of two of our key regions: California and New York/New Jersey. The art will cover 11,000 square feet of a Boeing 757. The two Boeing 757s will fly an average of 1.6 million miles a year and about 476 cross-country trips.

Six finalists (three for California and three for New York/New Jersey) will be selected to receive their own open gallery show, 100,000 United MileagePlus® award miles, will have their artwork on display in United ClubSM locations and United Polaris® lounges and featured on our social and digital channels. Two winners, one representing each region, will be chosen by public vote from the group of finalists and work with renowned artist Shantell Martin to finalize their designs for their respective region’s aircraft.

ELIGIBILITY: Artists must identify as a woman, whether that’s cisgender, transgender, woman-aligned or non-binary, and reside in the U.S. While you don’t have to currently live in California or the New York area, they are looking for artists who can visually represent, in their style, our shared purpose and values, mission, and what each region means to them.

DEADLINE: March 24, 2019

JACCC – RFP – Utility Box Project

In RFP on December 5, 2014 at 2:19 am

Since late 2012, Little Tokyo has been developing a vision for neighborhood sustainability that respects and enhances the neighborhood’s history and culture. Sustainable Little Tokyo’s vision is based on community values for resource conservation and seeks to build a cultural eco-district. We define sustainability in three ways: environmentally, economically, and culturally/historically.

Founded in 1971, the Japanese American Cultural and Community Center (JACCC) is one of the largest ethnic arts and cultural centers of its kind in the United States. The mission of the JACCC is to present, perpetuate, transmit and promote Japanese and Japanese American arts and culture to diverse audiences, and to provide a center to enhance community programs. The JACCC is the preeminent presenter of Japanese and Japanese American, and Asian American performing and visual arts nationally.

Throughout Little Tokyo, utility boxes are placed at various intersections and serve as traffic control signal cabinets. Last year, Councilmember José Huizar worked with Los Angeles Department of Transportation to streamline the approval process for art installations on the cabinets (CD14 José Huizar). The JACCC will lead this project in partnership with CD14 on the 10 utility boxes in Little Tokyo.
As an artist and community stakeholder, we want your help to envision and create designs for the utility boxes that will advance the goal of sustainable neighborhood revitalization and cultural preservation. The Utility Box Public Art Project will support Sustainable Little Tokyo’s efforts to preserve the neighborhood’s unique cultural heritage. We envision these boxes will highlight the multi-ethnic, multi-generational and historical assets of this resilient 130-year old neighborhood. A common design will be created for two of the four sides of the boxes and we will commission 10 artists to design the other two sides of each box.

ELIGIBILITY: Open call to all artists and those with a historical or cultural connection with Little Tokyo are encouraged to apply.
