Public Art CA Open Call for Artists


Apply by Friday, September 20, 2019, at 5:00 PM (PST).

We are working with the State of California to develop and administer a public art program for the California Natural Resources Agency and California Health and Human Services new buildings coming to Sacramento, CA.

There are four unique public art commission opportunities open to artists through this open call Request for Qualifications (RFQ) / Request for Proposal (RFP) process. We encourage artists to take time looking at each opportunity and applying to the commission that best suits their interests and practice. Artists may apply to more than one commission opportunity but must apply separately to each. Artists are encouraged to submit Statements of Qualification (SOQ) with artwork samples and letters of interest relevant to the specific commission they are applying to, even when applying to multiple commissions.

Artists age 18 and older may apply individually or collaboratively as a team. If applying as a team, please designate one artist as the lead contact. Any artist team selected through this RFQ must retain the same composition of individual team members until the completion of the commission.

Questions regarding the RFQ should be submitted online at All questions and answers regarding the RFQ open call and process will be shared publicly.

The deadline for submission of questions is Friday, August 30th, 2019, at 5:00 PM (PST). Responses will be posted on Friday, September 6th, 2019.
