Call for Artists McBean Regional Transit Center

On Behalf of the City of Santa Clarita Arts and Events Office and the Santa Clarita Arts Commission: Call for Artists

DEADLINE: Thursday, May 13, 2010
Project Description

The City of Santa Clarita is seeking an artist (or team of artists) to create two permanent, outdoor art pieces(one large piece [A] and one smaller artwork [B]). The artwork will be situated prominently at the entrance of the newly expanded McBean Regional Transit Center which will be located immediately West of the existing

Bus Transfer Center located at 24375 Valencia Blvd.,Santa Clarita, CA 91355.

The goal is to incorporate art at the site as an enhancement to the project.

The proposed McBean Regional Transit Center Park and Ride is a vacant, 5.7 acre lot (4.9 acres to be improved) located along the north side of Valencia Blvd., approximately 550 feet west of the Valencia Blvd/McBean Parkway intersection, in the City of Santa Clarita, California. The location of the new Transit Center expansion will be situated near a suburban/residential area, which includes some open space as

well. The artworks will serve as a gateway to the newly expanded Transit Center, and will be visible to motorists as they travel on Valencia Blvd.

The project should address the theme of Transportation, and can also consider the ideas of time, movement, cycles, schedules, and direction.
