The Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture’s Civic Art Division seeks an Artist or Artist team to submit their qualifications for the commission of a permanent artwork on the exterior of the La Puente One Stop Development Center in La Puente, CA.
The Civic Art Division strives to create artworks which reflect aesthetic and technical quality, innovation, site-specificity and civic engagement. To ensure that the artwork meets the expectations of the Center’s users, staff, neighborhood residents, and other stakeholders, the selected artist or artist team will be required to develop place-based research through creative civic engagement, regular site visits and design meetings, oversee budgets, manage timelines and work with conservators, structural engineers, fabricators, installers and other subcontractors.
This Call for Artists – Request for Proposal (RFP) is composed of two parts: Part A, requesting all interested artists submit their qualifications, which will be used to create a short-list of the highest ranked artists; and the Part B Proposal, inviting those short-listed artists to submit proposals. The Part A is open to all interested parties. The Part B Proposal is limited to three finalists selected during Part A.
This artwork opportunity is open to local artists residing or working within the Greater Los Angeles Area: Los Angeles County, Orange County, Ventura County, San Bernardino County, and Riverside County. Artists will not be eligible to apply if they have completed a civic art project with the Department of Arts and Culture in the last five years, whose budget was higher than $150,000.
