Alameda County Arts Commission call for artists
Submitted By Julie Machado
The Alameda County Arts Commission invites artists from the nine counties of the San Francisco Bay Area to apply for potential inclusion in the 2013 Artist Registry, a prequalified artist pool that will be used for upcoming public art opportunities. The opportunities may include exterior and interior projects, be appropriate for artists working in a variety of materials and styles, and have a range of project budgets. Many of the opportunities will be for artists to make a new series of smaller artworks in the studio, therefore, artists who make two-dimensional, low-relief, or wall sculptural artwork are encouraged to apply. Specific project sites include: San Lorenzo Library Expansion Project, East County Hall of Justice (Dublin), Highland Hospital (Oakland), and other sites to be determined.
There are public art opportunities for a wide range of artists such as: making artwork which contributes to healing environments, artists interested in collaborating with diverse communities, artists working in a variety of durable materials, emerging artists creating small to mid-sized framed artworks, and established artists who have completed major public art commissions.
This opportunity includes artists in Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, Solano, Sonoma, San Francisco, San Mateo, and Santa Clara Counties. Additional eligibility restrictions apply. Review the full application for complete eligibility requirements.
Complete application information is available at www.acgov.org/arts (click on "Opportunities") or call (510) 208-9646 to receive the information by mail. To be considered for these opportunities, artists must register and submit an application through the CaFE website, www.callforentry.org (search for "Alameda County" in the list of current calls). The application deadline is April 30 (10:59 p.m. Pacific Time).
Artists may attend a meeting to learn more about the Alameda County Arts Commission's Public Art Program, the project opportunities associated with the Artist Registries, and to receive general information about submitting an application through CaFE. Attendance is optional. The next meeting will be held Monday, April 1, from 6 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. at the San Lorenzo Library, located at 395 Paseo Grande in San Lorenzo.
