Fremont Extends Call for Artists for Downtown Temporary Art Installation


The City of Fremont has extended the deadline for its call for artists for a temporary art installation as part of its Downtown Fremont Public Art Program. The new deadline for submissions is Thursday, February 14, 2019. The deadline has been extended to encourage more local artists to apply.

The City is seeking one large scale sculpture to display for a period of two years, from May 2019 through May 2021, at its gateway location to Downtown Fremont. This temporary installation opportunity is to focus on Community: Sharing Energy and Collaborating as its theme. The City is looking for a sculpture that anchors the corner of Capitol Avenue and Fremont Boulevard and has a commanding presence. The selected piece will replace the Space Glow sculpture, which is currently on display through May 2019.

Artists can receive more information and apply online. Submissions are due Thursday, February 14, 2019.

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 community plans. The art fund is financed through development fees and will focus on showcasing interesting pieces of artwork to support the arts and create a sense of identity for these areas. The Art Review Board is responsible for administering the fund and making art selection recommendations to the Fremont City Council.
