The City is now accepting applications from professional artists and artist teams for the Series IV of the Rotating Public Art Program, Jennifer Paige, Acting Director of Planning and Community Development Department announced recently.

According to Paige’s announcement published in the City Manager’s weekly newsletter, applications will be accepted until January 15, 2023.

“This opportunity is open to artists based in California and seeks submissions of existing, loaned artwork, as well as proposals for new commissioned, site-responsive artworks in a variety of styles, materias, and approaches from a diverse pool of artists,” said Paige. 

According to Paige, the fourth iteration of the Rotating Public Art Program will include eight sculptural artworks to be installed at existing City-owned sites in each City Council District. 

The City’s Cultural Affairs Division will facilitate a virtual, public Community Meeting & Artist Workshop on Wednesday, Dec. 7 at 1:00 p.m. so the public would learn more about the Rotating Public Art Exhibition Program and application requirements. 

Meeting details will be provided on the City’s Cultural Affairs website. 

As envisioned, the Rotating Public Art Exhibition Program , launched in 2011, is intended to complement permanent Private Development and Capital Public Art Programs by placing artworks throughout the City, using unusual locations and transforming small, often unnoticed areas in the city into exciting and stimulating destinations for visitors and residents.

The first, second and third phase of the temporary public art program saw the installation of a total of 26 artworks throughout Pasadena.
