Resource Description
Opportunity Description
The City of Carlsbad's Library & Cultural Arts Department seeks to qualify two separate artist or artist teams to enter into a design agreement, along with a fabrication contract to develop and complete a large-scale site-specific mural at two separate designated sites within the city. These murals will have a strong visual presence and will play a significant role in defining the character of each community while contributing to the aesthetic quality of a public space, bringing people together with the city as a leader in bringing innovative ideas to the community, partnering with local groups to create capacity within the creative sector and connecting across city departments and among city partners connecting our initiatives outlined in our cityís Arts & Culture Master Plan. Each site is located in two very distinctive, but different areas of the city. There are two locations that have been identified: 1) An exterior west wall of the city-owned historic Bauer Lumber Building is adjacent to the North County Transit Districtís Carlsbad Village Coaster Station, just north of Christensen Way, Carlsbad, California. The historic lumber building houses long-term tenant, New Village Arts Theatre. 2) An exterior west wall of the Carlsbad City Library Learning Center, located at 3368 Eureka Place, Carlsbad, California. This Request for Qualifications is open to all artists who reside in California. At least two different artists or artist teams will be selected to complete each mural project. The city will not award both murals projects to the same artist or artist team.
