The City of Fremont recently issued a Call for Artists for a temporary installation as part of its Downtown Fremont Public Art Program. The City is seeking one 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 selected piece will replace the Space Glow sculpture, which is located at Capitol Avenue and Fremont Boulevard, a main gateway into Downtown Fremont. Space Glow is currently on display through May 2019.
Artists can receive more information and apply online at Art Downtown. Submissions are due Friday, January 11, 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.
