CALL FOR ARTISTS: Public Art Opportunity in Santa Rosa


This public art opportunity is for an artist or team of artists to design and execute a site-specific public art for the southwest exterior wall (facing Orchard Street and Fifth Street) of the Fifth Street Parking Garage in downtown Santa Rosa.

The goal of this completed project is to draw positive attention to and increase the visibility of the Fifth Street Garage, which even regular visitors to the downtown often do not know exists. The art will distinguish the garage from nearby structures, serve as a wayfinding element through identification and draw people to the site. The artwork will improve the aesthetics of the garage as seen from the street and by pedestrians.

The “canvas” for this project is to be contained within the exterior wall space (pictured below) with an approximate maximum dimension of 901 square feet, of which 670 square feet is concrete surfaces and 231 square feet is open to the parking on each floor. 2D materials, such as painted murals or other flat applications are encouraged, however, 3D materials including light-based installations will be considered with proper engineering and mounting/installation. The public artwork should consider the existing landscaping and hardscape, lighting, and viewer’s perspective.
