Arts Orange County announces a call for artists for a bicycle rack artwork project at the Santa Ana Veterans Village (SAVV). SAVV is a Permanent Supportive Housing development designed to provide critical shelter and services to homeless veterans navigating the transition off the streets. SAVV is now under construction by not-for-profit developer Jamboree Housing Corporation, and will open in Spring 2020.
Deadline: 15 Jul 2019
Artists, private collectors, galleries, and museums/non-profit institutions are invited to submit their qualifications, design concepts or existing artworks for consideration. No application fees required.
Santa Ana Veterans Village desires to provide a welcoming, comfortable, and healing environment for its residents and visitors. Some of whom have experienced severe war-time trauma and its after-effects. Therefore, Arts Orange County is seeking artwork that is uplifting in spirit, does not employ military imagery, or have the potential to be disturbing or to trigger distress.
Bicycle Rack Artwork Project Artist Benefits
For the Bicycle Rack Artwork Project, fee is to be no greater than $15,000. The fee is to include design, review by a structural engineer, fabrication, delivery to site, preparation of a maintenance plan, and cost of artist’s travel to site to oversee its installation by Jamboree’s contracted professional art installation subcontractor. Final installed work becomes the property of Santa Ana Village LP. Artist’s work will have a permanent home making a contribution to an environment with a specific and urgent social good at its heart.
As a non-profit arts agency, Arts Orange County sees the empowerment and enrichment of diverse voices and underprivileged communities as a key mission of the arts. The annual Imagination Celebration produces over forty low-cost educational artistic events for Orange County’s children, including the annual Dia del Nino weekend fair that spotlights the work of Latino artists and performers. The annual Orange County Arts Awards give support and a spotlight to arts leaders and visionaries emerging from our diverse communities.
The healthy re-integration of military veterans into civilian society is an urgent mission that impacts public health, housing, and reflects our civic values. Art can be a benefit for any population sector in need.
