The City of Palo Alto Public Art Program invites artists and artist teams working in a variety of visual media and artistic approaches to submit qualifications for potential inclusion in a Prequalified Artist Pool for upcoming public art opportunities. A list of eligible artists selected for the Prequalified Pool will be used by the Palo Alto Public Art Program staff to recommend appropriate applicants for a range of permanent and temporary public art opportunities.
Most public art commissions will be associated with municipal and private development projects as they arise throughout Palo Alto during the years 2018 – 2020. Artists may submit existing artworks for consideration for temporary display within the City. Social practice and performance artists are also welcome to apply for temporary public art initiatives. Artists invited to be part of the Prequalified Pool will be selected based on appropriateness of their previous experience and artistic excellence. Some projects may also provide opportunities for an artist or artist team to work as part of a design team along with the project architect/designer. Inclusion in the Prequalified Artist Pool does not guarantee selection for any projects.
BUDGET: Project budgets range from $15,000 to $600,000
ELIGIBILITY: Professional artists and artist teams over the age of 18 residing in the United States; international artists obtaining a US work permit
DEADLINE: September 23, 2018 11:59 p.m. PST
The applications will be first pre-screened by the Public Art Program staff for the minimum eligibility criteria listed below:

All artists approved for inclusion in the prequalified pool will be notified by the Public Art Program staff in writing.

The Public Art Program may put out additional calls for specific public art opportunities as needed. Eligible applicants will be reviewed and selected for any appropriate public art opportunities in municipal and private development as they arise in 2018/2020.
Artists will be contacted prior to any selection panel process to confirm their interest and availability for a particular commission opportunity. For municipal projects, the project selection panels consist of City staff, a Public Art Commissioner, arts professionals and appropriate project stakeholders.
