Burning Man Project (CA), Request for Proposals: Plaza Artworks, City of Mountain View’s Charleston East Public Plaza
Deadline: June 26th, 2018
Budget: $100,000 (two artists will each be awarded a $100,000 grant in this call)
Burning Man Project is pleased to announce a third opportunity for artists to create artwork for the City of Mountain View’s Charleston East public plaza — site of the City’s new public park and Google’s new Charleston East campus. It is currently under construction and due to be completed in early/mid 2020. Burning Man Project is collaborating on the process of community engagement, along with selecting, creating and installing the artworks, as part of its ongoing efforts to promote opportunities for artists to create art and share it with the world.
The call is open to artists, artist teams, community groups working with designers, architects, landscape architects, or place-keeping experts who are interested in creating a newly commissioned exterior art installation that serves as an activation point for the Charleston East plaza site, for the Mountain View community and for the Google campus.
Situated at the southeast corner of the campus, Charleston East plaza will serve as a place where the City of Mountain View and Google may host events, performances, and gatherings that bring the community together. Seen as a place to serve the community and generate opportunities for play, Charleston East Plaza is a part of a contiguous set of parks and wetlands that serve the bayshore area.
