Detailed Description

The Arts and Culture Commission of the City of Glendale (City) is searching for innovative Artists and Artist Teams with an ability to creatively approach engaging and active public art, and a deep understanding of how public art complements and challenges their community and civic environment.

The aim across the various artwork opportunities is to create world-class public artwork in a diverse range of mediums that are designed to engage the community, showcase the cultural diversity of the City and enhance the various civic and public spaces.
Artists or Artist Teams shortlisted through this RFQ will be asked to address the selected locations as landmark visual opportunities and to create an engaging and dynamic element inviting residents and visitors to the City to interact, connect and utilize the spaces around the art.

Each of the individual locations demand unique approaches and creative uses of materials and sustainability and they invite Artists and Artist Teams to offer their approaches to attaining the project goals. Artist and Artist Teams should take the following under consideration across each of the opportunities:

  • Physical engagement with the public
  • Creating multiple visual angles and approaches
  • All day activation – Day and night
  • Utilization of creative mediums
  • Artwork sustainability and conservation

Funding Information

  • Each of the 10 artwork locations has an allocated budget ranging from $75,000 to $750,000.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Artists age 18 or older may apply as an individual or as a team. The RFQ is open to all and not restricted to any geographic location but the following considerations will be strongly considered:
  • Artists who can demonstrate the ability to oversee the design, fabrication and installation of public works – or who have a history of working with design/build/engineering//fabrication teams to accomplish these needs.
  • Artists without previous public art experience that demonstrate an ability to manage a team to accomplish the goals are still strongly encouraged to apply.
  • Artists in traditionally and historically underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
