The Southern California Consolidation Project for the California Air Resource Board (CARB) is an approximately 400,000 square-foot facility on a 19-acre campus located in Riverside, CA.
The campus is one of the world’s largest and most advanced emissions testing and research facilities and consolidates five existing locations into one state-of-the-art facility. The campus, under the design-build team of ZGF, Hensel Phelps (HP), and Affiliated Engineers, Inc. (AEI), is the largest true zero net energy facility of its type and has the highest sustainability goals including Zero Net Energy, LEED Platinum, CALGreen Tier 2, and Zero Carbon.
The Public Art Program is developed and managed by Dyson & Womack and includes three Open Call public art commissions. The commission opportunities are sited in three distinctive locations on the campus. The diverse possibilities for artwork at these sites will challenge and progress the materials, processes, and forms that public art takes today.
There are three unique public art commission opportunities open to artists through this open call Request for Qualifications (RFQ) / Request for Proposals (RFP) process. We encourage artists to take time looking at each opportunity and to apply to the commission that best suits their interests and work.
Artists may apply to more than one commission opportunity but must apply separately to each. Artists are encouraged to submit Statements of Qualifications (SOQ) with artwork samples and letters of interest that are relevant to the specific commission to which they are applying, even when applying to multiple opportunities. We encourage artists to engage critically with the mission of CARB and the vision of the Art Plan to shape the future of public art in California and across our diverse communities.
All Statements of Qualification (SOQs) must be submitted electronically through https://dysonwomack.submittable.com/submit by Friday, August 31, 2018 at 5:00 PM (PST).
Artists and Artist Teams may apply to one or more of the three open call public art commission opportunities listed below but must submit a unique SOQ to each. Artists and Artist Teams may only apply once to each specific commission opportunity.
We strongly encourage applicants to review the RFQ site and supporting documents available prior to responding to this RFQ. SOQs submitted late, or through any other means than this application portal will not be reviewed.
