The Orange County Public Art Review Board (Website) is looking for one or more artist(s) to create artwork for a new community center in Holden Heights.
The new center will host educational services and meetings spaces. The previous center was required to move due to the expansion of the interstate. We will be following up on that story shortly.
The County is looking to house a sculpture in a large, high-ceilinged atrium, but murals are also acceptable.
The chosen artist will be awarded a comprehensive contract that covers design, fabrication, materials, installation, insurance, travel, meetings, identification plaque and any other incidental expenses.
Submission requirements are as follows:
• 10 copies of a professional resume (teams must submit resumes for each member).
• 10 copies of a letter of interest (typed, two page maximum, no less than 12 point font) outlining interest in this project and a preliminary statement of approach.
• Up to 10 digital images of previous projects. Submit in jpeg format, up to 200 dpi, 800X600 pixels. Files will be uploaded to County’s FTP site. Instructions for uploading will be given in response to inquiry emails sent to [email protected] Name files with artist name and number per image list(e.g.: smith_1.jpg, smith_2.jpg). Please ensure that all files are electronically scanned by current virus scanning software. Files with detected viruses will not be considered. Do not send videos, DVDs, print-outs, photographs or original art.
• 10 copies of an annotated list of images indicating title, dimensions (H x W X D), materials, date of work, location of each work, and brief description of the artwork if necessary.
• Experience with similar public art project budget size not required but helpful. The Public Artist Selection Panel and Orange County reserves the right to reject any or all applications, proposals, applicants, or projects, and to modify or terminate the application process or the selection process for any reason and without prior notice.
Submissions are due March 9 at 5 p.m.
A selection panel will choose a handful of artists to present their proposals and they will be paid a stipend of $500 each. Final artists selection will take place after review of the proposals.
