Culver City


The City of Culver City will implement a permanent Public Art Program for the Washington/National TOD (Transit Oriented Development) District. The Washington National TOD Gateway Public Art Program will inspire artists in the creation of world-class, aesthetically rigorous artwork(s) that respond to the natural, cultural, and infrastructural resources present at the site. Formerly the site of the Hal Roach Studios, the Washington National TOD gateway has continued to be a site of artistic and entrepreneurial activity. This Public Art Program will offer artists the opportunity to aesthetically respond to the past, present, and future of this unique cultural site.

This Public Art Program is an opportunity to highlight voices from California art communities, bringing our vibrant cultural scene into conversation with the global landscape of public art. Public art embodies a rich history of spatial impact and critique. It is an active mode of creation that responds to public space with demands, questions, and a desire for wonder. Artists
who work in public space understand the unique responsibility this entails and the power and pressure of working within the public eye. Public art is for the public and an act of giving that can surprise, baffle, and in some cases, move the public to change. Today, public art continues to transform across mediums, forms, and activations. This open call for Artists and Artist Teams supports these developments by embracing a contemporary, accessible concept of what public art is, who makes it, and who makes up the intended audience.
