The City of Vista’s Public Arts Commission seeks artists to participate in a public, temporary sculpture exhibit. The exhibit offers participating artists a unique opportunity to showcase original sculptural work in downtown Vista. The goal of the “kites” program is to promote art in Vista, and to brand Vista as home to a significant and dynamic collection of public artwork. Up to six art works will be selected through a juried competition conducted by the City’s Public Arts Commission. The selected artists will agree to loan the artwork to the City for a minimum of 12 months with ownership rights remaining with the artists.
All models are due at the Vista Civic Center by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, January 21, 2020. Late or incomplete proposals will not be accepted. Interviews may be held after due date. Winning proposals will be selected at the February 4, 2020 Public Arts Commission meeting and recommended to City Council for approval. Winners will be announced on cityofvista.com after February 26, 2020. Participating artists, if selected, must be prepared to deliver their completed kite artwork for installation by May 1, 2020.
The completed artwork with be prominently displayed in the public areas of downtown Vista.
