The City of West Hollywood’s Art on the Outside program is seeking qualifications from artists and/or artist teams to establish a pool of qualified artists to create temporary, site-specific, land art installations in Plummer Park and along Santa Monica Boulevard in an exhibition titled Can You Dig It?.  In the wake of the water crisis in California the public has been forced to reconsider how they use water in their everyday lives. The City of West Hollywood has already begun to take action by enforcing water usage restrictions and encouraging residents and businesses to conserve water. Through the Can You Dig It?exhibition of temporary, site-specific, land art installations the City invites artists to reimagine its dry and arid public landscapes.

ELIGIBILITY: Open to professional artists/artist teams residing in the United States.


BUDGET: Budgets for individual projects will range from $5,000 to $12,000. Project budgets are all-inclusive and intended to cover the cost of design, fabrication and installation.

DEADLINE: Applications must be submitted online by 5:00pm, August 26, 2015.


QUESTIONS: For all questions related to this call to artists contact Rebecca Ehemann, Public Art Coordinator, City of West Hollywood, (323) 848-6846[email protected].
