LANCASTER – Calling all artists… The Lancaster Museum of Art and History (MOAH) under the direction of Lancaster City’s Parks, Recreation and Arts Department is seeking artists or artist teams to propose a sculpture or other art installation honoring uniformed heroes and service members.
The public art memorial will be placed at the entrance of American Heroes Park, located at 701 West Kettering Avenue in Lancaster. The park opened in 2011 as part of the city’s redevelopment plan utilizing art and culture to revitalize the City’s urban core.
The budget available for the creation of the piece or installation is $45,000. Proposals should take into consideration the high winds, cold winters and hot summers characteristic of the Antelope Valley.
The selected project will tell the story of service men and women whose lives have been dedicated to serving Antelope Valley residents and all Americans.
The artwork/installation should demonstrate the range of diversity among service members in the Antelope Valley, as well as their commitment to protecting and maintaining the American values of freedom, selflessness and democracy.
The artwork should properly represent the following organizations, which have a strong presence in the Antelope Valley: fire, law enforcement, and all branches of the military.
Proposal submissions must be postmarked no later than Monday, April 7, 2014.
