The City of Monterey is looking for memorable, exceptional and timeless pieces that will acknowledge the City's past, present and future by celebrating our historic heritage, cultural diversity and distinctive environment. Proposed sites will be gateways to Monterey, locations that are visible to millions of pedestrians and passing traffic each year. Proposals submitted must include a scale mockup, in color, with the full development of concept along with production costs.
A selection committee will review qualified proposals and make recommendations to the Museums and Cultural Arts, Parks and Recreation, and Planning Commissions. Sealed proposals must be received in the Colton Hall Museum, 570 Pacific Street, at Monterey City Hall by Friday, May 24, 2019 by 4 pm. An application and more details about the proposal description, locations and selection process is in the Call for Public Art Mural and Call for Public Art Sculpture application or may be picked up at Colton Hall Museum, 570 Pacific Street, Monterey.
