Watershed Public Art Markers – Oakland, CA - February 6, 2009

The City of Oakland Cultural Arts and Marketing Division is proud to announce the release of the Request for Qualifications for another Measure DD public art opportunity, the Oakland, CA: Watershed Public Art Markers. Bay Area artists are invited to apply for the opportunity to design an interpretive public art marker that celebrates and identifies the role of the watershed systems of Oakland , California , including creeks, lakes, and the estuary. The selected artist will create a prototype of the art marker and will fabricate and install the first series of markers based on this prototype at various key locations in the Oakland watershed systems. Deadline: Friday, February 6, 2009. Project Budget: $92,000. All applications must be submitted through CaFÉ ( www.callforentry.org ). Look under “CaFÉ Listings” to find this opportunity. Oakland is home to 15 main creeks and over 40 smaller tributaries, all of which play a vital role in the city’s health and well-being. These waterways provide plant and wildlife habitat, stormwater transport, flood management and water cleansing functions as well as valuable recreational and aesthetic benefit for Oakland residents. Although historically contiguous from the Oakland Hills to the San Francisco Bay , all of Oakland ’s creeks are now partially or extensively buried or diverted into culverts and storm drains. Their lack of visibility in certain areas of the city reduces overall understanding of their role and value. To enhance the historic, cultural, aesthetic and interpretive potential of the often-overlooked creeks system and the city’s “crown jewel,” Lake Merritt, a total of $92,000 ($72,000 from Creeks Restoration and $20,000 from Lake Merritt capital projects) has been allocated to commission an artist to create a prototype of an interpretive artwork marker that will identify the location of creek nodes and draw attention to the value of the creek habitats that exist throughout the city. A Request for Qualifications can be downloaded at: www.oaklandculturalarts.org/main/callforartists.htm. Applications are to be submitted only through www.callforentry.com no paper submissions will be reviewed. The Oakland, CA: Watershed Public Art Markers project is funded through the Oakland Trust for Clean Water & Safe Parks (Measure DD). This $198.25 million dollar bond is funding a comprehensive ten-year plan to clean up and restore Lake Merritt , the Oakland Estuary Waterfront, and Oakland 's creeks system by improving land/water quality and expanding recreational facilities and opportunities for Oakland citizens.

East Main Street Roundabout – Norman, OK - December 15, 2008

The Norman Public Arts Board (PAB), on behalf of the Norman Arts Council and the City of Norman, seeks an artist (or team of artists) to create a permanent, public outdoor work of art for the center island of the East Main Street Roundabout, which will be located on East Main between Porter/Classen and NE 12th Street at the intersection of Main, Acres, and Carter. The center of the roundabout will be 29.5' in diameter. The base of the art piece shall fit within a fifteen foot diameter in the center of the island. Appropriate landscaping will be designed to complement the work of art. As pedestrian traffic is limited to the sidewalks and bicycle paths adjacent to the intersection, there is no access to the center island. The sculpture should be durable and safe as well as weather resistant and vandalism resistant. The goal of this project is to create a focal point of this heavily trafficked intersection that visually anchors one of Norman's older residential neighborhoods with busy streets that link to a variety of destinations. The installation should embody a theme representative of central Oklahoma. This theme could relate to any of the following, but not limited to: Oklahoma weather, Native American heritage, civic character, complexity of a university city, cultural diversity of the third largest city in the state, the pioneer spirit, and the natural habitats or environment of the area. The style of the sculpture may be a traditional, architectural, figurative, or contemporary interpretation of the theme and may be of any material. www.normanarts.org
