For Artists

The Alameda County Arts Commission is now accepting applications for new Public Art Registries. Many of Alameda County’s capital improvement projects include a Percent-for-Art Program in which professional artists are commissioned to make artwork for each site. Due to the upcoming schedule of construction projects, many of the artists commissioned for these public art projects will be selected from two registries of pre-qualified artists (Artist Registries).

1. Artist Registry 2010-2011: Permanent, Site-Specific Public Artwork | Deadline: March 19, 2010
Open to professional artists residing in California.*
This Registry is for artists who have experience making permanent, site-specific public artwork; opportunities will be available for exterior and interior projects, be appropriate for artists working in a variety of materials and styles, and have a range of project budgets. Individual contracts may range from approximately $20,000 to $200,000.

2. Artist Registry 2010-2011: Small-Scale, Wall-Mounted Artwork | Deadline: March 19, 2010
Open to artists who live, work, or rent/own a studio in Alameda County.*
This Registry is for artists who are making small to mid-sized, wall-mounted, two-dimensional or low-relief artwork. Individual contracts may range from $4,000 to $20,000; artists may be commissioned to make a one new artwork or a new series of work.

* Additional eligibility restrictions for artists who currently have work in the Alameda County Art Collection. Refer to the complete application for details or call the Arts Commission office at (510) 208-9646 for more information.
