Call for Entry: Mill Valley Public Art Program
The City of Mill Valley’s Arts Commission is currently soliciting local artists interested in participating in the City’s new Public Art Program.
If you are a professional artist, who specializes in the creation of public artwork, and would like to be considered for a future public art project, please consider submitting an Artist Statement of Qualifications, online.
The Arts Commission hopes to create a list of talented local artists through this process and it is an excellent way to introduce yourself and your artwork to the City.
Once selected, artists will then be provided Requests for Proposal (RFPs) as public art projects are identified by the Public Art Committee, and approved by the Arts Commission and the City Council and become open for bid. In the future, the Arts Commission anticipates a variety of exhibition opportunities in its development of the City’s Public Art Program including the donation of artwork, the lease of artwork, the commission of artwork and the acquisition of artwork.
The Artist Statement of Qualifications shall include as a minimum the following from the artist:
- A cover letter introducing themselves, expressing their interest in the project and the reason why they should be selected by the Mill Valley Arts Commission and the City of Mill Valley.
- An Artist’s Statement.
- An Artistic Resume with examples of at least 3 to 5 public artworks that have been completed and the locations where they might be observed.
- At least one image of each completed art piece listed on resume.
- At least one client reference and summary of project and construction cost related to each project listed on resume, including a list of local Northern California projects in development, if any.
