YOU ARE HERE
, curated/presented by AFTA Productions, will initiate a temporary public art program in Glendale, CA. A series of installations submitted by individual
artists, teams or organizations will be selected through this proposal process to create
exterior temporary art installations or experiences for site-specific locations
arts & culture district, municipal district and areas of historic
significance. The exact locations will
be determined upon receipt of all proposals in order to provide an ideal
intersection of the work and site. The
program is seeking installations that are able to withstand exposure to the
elements, incorporate illumination/projection for after-hours impact and/or provide an interactive experience.
brand concept for YOU ARE HERE plays upon the geographic visual
of a map and corresponding locations in Glendale. YOU ARE HERE by
name association alone lends itself to a literal translation of a specific
destination on a map, an ideal graphic to chart the course of the city’s public art experience. YOU ARE HERE will
profile Glendale as a creative destination to discover and explore.
Program Dates: November 1, 2014 - December 31, 2015
Installations will be exhibited throughout this timeframe. Individual artists or artist
teams should indicate in their submission detail if there is an ideal time of
year or environmental surrounding that would enhance the impact of their
installation. (i.e. organic/plant based
installations best in Fall/Winter milder conditions, seasonal/holiday based
ideas, illuminated installations best during longer hrs of darkness etc.)
