New Public Art Opportunity for Dove Springs Recreation Center
Artwork Budget $44,000
Art in Public Places seeks to commission a professional visual artist to create artwork for the Dove Springs Recreation Center. The City requests qualifications from local visual artists to create a contemporary work of art for the Center that considers the diverse community around the Center, and integrates elements that promote investigation of the natural environment. The selected artist, or artist team, will work closely with the project’s design team to develop a comprehensive design for the artwork.
An artist info meeting and application workshop was held on October 9 at 6:30PM at the Pleasant Hill Branch Library. Click here for slides from the meeting.
