Opportunity for a USA nonprofit organization, curator, or individual artist to install a public art exhibition in California. Artists will curate and install a temporary exhibition. The exhibition may be cultural, artistic, or popular in theme and must have a strong presence in both the daytime and nighttime. The exhibit will be installed at the Santa Monica Boulevard at Doheny Drive median in West Hollywood.

BIPOC, women, LGBTQ+, and West Hollywood-based applicants are especially encouraged to apply. 

The City of West Hollywood, through its Arts Division, requests proposals from professional artists, curators, or non-profit arts organizations, to curate and install a temporary public art exhibition at the Santa Monica Boulevard at Doheny Drive median. Proposals may be artistic, cultural, or popular in nature and may (but are not required to) feature themes related to the City’s unique history. Proposals will be evaluated on the artistic merit, potential visual enjoyment, innovation/risk in concept and technical approach, and prospective social interaction. Artworks should have both a strong daytime and nighttime presence.

Artworks included in the exhibition proposal should be able to withstand the natural elements and be ready to install in a public setting. Delicate artworks that may be vulnerable to the elements and/or public interaction are not advisable for this setting.

The City will prepare the site, remove existing foundations, remove/relocate existing light elements, and construct new foundations to receive the approved public art exhibition. 

The location is a minimally landscaped traffic median on Santa Monica Boulevard between Doheny and Almont Drives. The exhibition space offers an opportunity for the artwork to be viewed by approximately 50,000 people every day who enter and exit the City daily by car through its main western gateway. The site is open to the public without dedicated staff posted continuously to monitor the space.
