Deadline: July 31st, 2017, 10:59pm PST
*For Artists from Six Bay Area Counties: Santa Clara County, Alameda County, San Francisco County, San Mateo County, Santa Cruz County, Contra Costa County
The City of San Jose Public Art Program (SJPA) is creating a Roster of Pre-Qualified Artists. The purpose of the Roster is to streamline the artist selection process for a range of upcoming mural projects. Artists who are chosen for inclusion in the Roster will be eligible to be considered for future public art mural projects in San Jose. Inclusion in the final Roster will be for a period of three years.
The Roster will include, but is not limited to, artists who work in the following two-dimensional artwork media:
- Digital media
- Graphic design
Possible mural project locations may include, but are not limited to, a range of outdoor and indoor sites; surfaces may include concrete, plaster, wood, asphalt (such as crosswalks), vinyl or poly-vinyl mesh, and other materials; they may also include digitally-projected images. Sites may have pre-existing paint or other treatments.
It is anticipated that some projects may be on sites in San Jose that fall under jurisdiction of the State of California’s Department of Transportation (CalTrans). Such locations may require compliance with CalTrans own rules for permitting, review and design approvals.
This project is open only to artists or artist teams who reside and do their artistic work in one of the following counties in California: Santa Clara County, Alameda County, San Francisco County, San Mateo County, Santa Cruz County, Contra Costa County. All applicants must be at least 18 years of age and have all necessary documentation and permits to work in the United States at the time of submittal of qualifications.
Budget: $2,000 – $75,000 is the anticipated budget range for the City’s upcoming mural projects. Project budgets will vary on a case-by-case basis and may be determined by considerations such as location, size and other project-specific factors.
Duration of the roster: Inclusion in the final Roster of Prequalified artists will be for a period of three years.
