Call for Artists – Downtown Fremont Public Art Program


The City of Fremont issued a Call for Artists for a temporary installation as part of its Downtown Fremont Public Art Program. Metamorphosis was selected as the theme to represent Downtown Fremont’s transformation from a suburban landscape into a vibrant, walkable downtown that will serve as the social heart of the community.

The selected piece will replace ‘Heartfullness’, a sculpture by artist Katy Boynton, which is located at Capitol Avenue and Fremont Boulevard, a main gateway into Downtown Fremont. ‘Heartfullness’ is currently on display through January 31, 2017. The new piece is anticipated to be installed in spring 2017 and will remain for two years through 2019.

Artists can apply online through the CaFÉ™ website. The Call for Artists can be found by searching “Downtown Fremont Public Art Program (Temporary Installation) – Metamorphosis.” The link to the application is also available on our Downtown webpage. Submissions are due Thursday, December 8, 2016, by 10:59 p.m. Pacific Standard Time.

The Downtown Fremont Public Art program is a result of an Art Fund that was established from framework set forth by the Downtown, Warm Springs, and City Center (area surrounding the Downtown) community plans. The Art Fund is financed through development fees and will focus on showcasing exciting, interesting pieces of artwork to support the arts and create a sense of identity for these initiative areas. The Art Review Board is responsible for administering the fund and making art selection recommendations to the Fremont City Council.
