The City of Fremont has embarked on the ambitious project of building a vibrant, centrally-located Downtown District from scratch. With many new buildings now under construction and others beginning to open their doors, there is a sense of momentum and vibrancy in Downtown. The Downtown Event Center and Plaza will be the first new public building constructed and will add to this energy by creating a unique space for the entire Fremont community to gather. The Downtown Event Center and Plaza will serve as a destination for community meetings, receptions, local business events, and economic development conferences. The project features a 13,400 square foot community center adjacent to a one acre plaza that provides room for active games/sports, food trucks, concerts, maker fairs, markets, and more. For more information on the Downtown District and the Downtown Event Center and Plaza project, please visit www.Fremont.gov/Downtown.
The artwork installation will be located within the new public plaza adjacent to the Downtown Event Center. The artwork will activate an otherwise passive area of the plaza. It will be located along one of the main walkways leading into the entrance of the Downtown Event Center, and it will receive significant exposure. The artwork will help define the character of the plaza by creating an engaging and vibrant atmosphere while also offering pleasant walking experiences for residents and visitors.
In line with the current development momentum of Fremont building a downtown from scratch, the artwork should reflect the theme of “forward.” The artwork should convey the energy and excitement of the construction of the new downtown and this new community gathering space. Particular consideration will be given to artwork that engages its viewer through the use of interactive elements, lights, or other technology.
