Resource Description
Opportunity Description
The City of Carlsbad's Library & Cultural Arts Department seeks to qualify an artist or artist team to enter into an agreement to develop a site-integrated artwork for City of Carlsbad’s Fire Station 2 located at the intersection of El Camino Real and Arenal Road in Carlsbad, California. As an artist, you’ll add value in fully articulating the design and enhancing and complimenting the aesthetics of the architecture while creating a unique visual experience for the visitors and residents in Carlsbad. By designing an illumination/lighting installation or glass feature, the artist or artist team will also align to a national public art trend and ultimately further Carlsbad’s public art reputation. This unique location provides the artist with a blank canvas to develop a high visual impact experience that will be meaningful to the firefighters who are housed there and continue to increase our community’s interest in public art and heighten the visibility of artists and the arts in Carlsbad. Artist and artist teams should know that any proposal by a selected artist must undergo an extensive approval process which may include revision or modification through the city's Art in Public Places program and required city agreement and contract. Take this approval process, contractual process, health and safety protocols and obligations into consideration when submitting proposals. The process, fees and services are subject to negotiation based on proposed deliverables and must meet the city’s standards for public stewardship. Also, consideration of the project’s goals as it relates to an appropriate cost/outcome ratio.
