Depot Park Seeks Public Art




August 3, 2017


This commission is open to practicing, professional artists residing in the United States. Artists working in a variety of 3-D installation and permanent media are encouraged to apply.


The Public Art Program is seeking an artist to design and implement a permanent public art project in Depot Park. This public art opportunity is for one artist or team of artists to create a dynamic installation that reflects the identity of the historic Railroad Square neighborhood. This can be approached abstractly or literally. The public art should be interactive, activate Depot Park, create a sense of place in daylight and at night, and reinforce the location as a gathering space. Installations integrated with landscape or hardscape elements, and those with functional components will also be considered.


Installation will be sited at Depot Park in Historic Railroad Square. The small park is located at 9 Fourth Street, Santa Rosa, California, and is adjacent to the Santa Rosa main SMART (Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit) station and the Railroad Square California Welcome Center. The proposed public art should be contained to the park property, taking into consideration the existing amenities, including other artworks.


The maximum project budget is $32,000 and should be inclusive of all artist fees, and all expenses related to design development, including engineering, fabrication, travel, transportation and installation of the artwork, insurance, and all other project related expenses. Finalists invited to submit specific proposals will receive an honorarium of $500 for their efforts and materials for a maquette of their proposed project.
