City of Claremont
The City of Claremont is excited to release a new RFQ for a temporary art installation at City Hall. Artists and artist teams are invited to submit qualifications for a site-specific outdoor public art installation to be exhibited in front of City Hall in downtown Claremont. This is a very visible public space in Claremont’s bustling village area near the Claremont Colleges, close to museums and the train. Local artists are encouraged to apply.
The City of Claremont is an incorporated City with a population of over 37,000 residents, located 30 miles east of downtown Los Angeles. Claremont is best known for its tree-lined streets, historic buildings, and college campuses. Over the last couple of years, Claremont’s lovely trees have been impacted by the drought, as many communities have. Qualified artists should creatively and thoughtfully keep in mind the history of the site and Claremont in general, the context of the trees relative to the site, and the rich art history and art culture that exists in Claremont. The City of Claremont seeks artists with artwork or artworks that are either already fabricated or can be fabricated for the purpose of enhancing the aesthetics of the location and surroundings of City Hall property. The ultimate goal is to find an iconic, timeless, permanent piece for City Hall.

Proposals are due by Friday, April 14, 2017.
