CALL TO ARTISTS: Fitch Mountain Public Art Project


Call for Artists – Fitch Mountain Public Art Project 

Professional artists are invited to submit ideas and qualifications for a signature public art project as part of the City of Healdsburg Fitch Mountain Access Improvement project. 

This commission is open to practicing, professional artists residing in the United States. Artists working in a variety of 3-D installations and permanent media are encouraged to apply. Preference will be given to artists residing in Northern California or those with a connection to Sonoma County or the state of California. All artists must be able to participate in an orientation and visit the summit of Fitch Mountain at least once during this process. 

Fitch Mountain is a 991-foot peak that nestles up to the city’s eastern boundary. The Fitch Mountain Art Committee is seeking an artist to design and implement a permanent (site-specific) public art project on Fitch Mountain in Healdsburg, California. This public art opportunity is for one artist or team of artists to create an installation that reflects and celebrates the natural landscape and experience of being on Fitch Mountain. The public art may or may not be interactive. Installations integrated with the landscape, and those with functional components will also be considered.

Artists are invited to submit qualifications through an online form (, no later than March 10 at 5 pm. The attached PDF explains all the requirements of how to submit. The selection panel will review all submittals and choose a small group of finalists to be interviewed, and the project is expected to be installed this summer.
