Resource Description
Over a two-year period, JCNI will undertake an open competitive process to commission an artist to create and install a permanent, site-specific artwork for the 2.6 acre linear urban park that follows a newly restored section of Chollas Creek, the Our Town Public Art Project at Chollas Creek. This project is a collaboration with the City of San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture and is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). The park is located across from a retail and residential plaza at the intersection of Euclid Avenue and Market Street, the area’s main transit hub. The proposed artwork will be seen by visitors and residents that utilize the area for recreation and leisure, and will encourage a sense of civic pride, creating a vibrant, historic, geographic, and symbolic focal point. The Our Town Public Art Project at Chollas Creek also builds upon JCNI’s history of artistically focused community engagement and JCNI’s new development based on the Town Center Master Plan which calls for almost 800 homes and 200,000 square feet of commercial and retail space. The artwork will be part of an open space at the heart of this new development.
Opportunity Description
The artist selected for the Chollas Creek Public Art Project is expected to design, fabricate, transport and install a permanent, site-specific artwork at the site within the given project budget and the given project timeline. The estimated budget is approximately $70,000 for artwork design, fabrication, and installation. The budget is all-inclusive and must cover all costs associated with the artwork design and realization of the artwork, including all travel expenses. JCNI will conduct the application process online, with all materials submitted in digital format as a single PDF to Drop Box. Please visit website for full details.
