The Prequalified Artists Roster will enable Cultural Affairs to connect talented and capable artists/teams that can produce unique, innovative, and transformative works in the city of Santa Monica with a variety of scales, timelines, and artistic disciplines. The roster is a curated shortlist that will be adjudicated quarterly and will serve as a resource for public art selection panels, City departments outside of Cultural Affairs, external organizations, and private entities.

ELIGIBILITY: This request for qualifications is open to all artists, social practitioners, designers, architects, heritage holders, or teams engaged with public art, site responsive design, and community engaged design practices. All artist/teams, 18 years of age or older, of every race, color, religion, national origin, gender identification, military status, sexual orientation, marital status, and physical ability are encouraged to apply. City of Santa Monica Commission members or City of Santa Monica Employees are not eligible to apply for inclusion in this roster.
