Event History

Over the last decade, the City has engaged in long-term planning for repurposing and redeveloping former industrial land around the Culver City Metro Expo Line Station. The City and the former Culver City Redevelopment Agency identified and assembled land for potential redevelopment sites, rezoned the land to accommodate transit-oriented development uses, and implemented a TOD District Streetscape Plan to improve walkability, biking and promote sustainable development. Public art will be a visible part of this project as a means by which artists respond to and propose alternate modes of organization within the built environment.

What Makes this event different?

The call for artists at the Green Open Space at Washington & National Blvds. aims to create world-class public artwork, engage diverse voices, challenge cultural perceptions, and improve civic space. By responding to the context of the Washington/National TOD District, this commission is an opportunity to create within the rich setting of Culver City and greater Metropolitan Los Angeles. This Public Art Program is an opportunity to highlight voices from California art communities, bringing our vibrant cultural scene into conversation with the global landscape of public art. Public art embodies a rich history of spatial impact and critique. It is an active mode of creation that responds to public space with demands, questions, and a desire for wonder. Artists who work in public space understand the unique responsibility this entails and the power and pressure of working within the public eye.

By responding to the context of the Washington/National TOD District, this commission is an opportunity to create within the rich setting of Culver City and greater Metropolitan Los Angeles.

The commission site is a parcel of land located directly at the intersection of Washington Blvd. and National Blvd. Bounded by commerce, transit, and residential zones, this site will be visited by Culver City locals, tourists, and business commuters, as well as nearby residents. Not only will the site accommodate a wide range of use cases, but it will also be visible to many people from a wide range of transit modes.

While the primary real estate for this commission is the Green Open Space, the commission opportunity extends to the three additional corners of the Washington & National Blvds. intersection visually tying the four
corners of the intersection together with visual art, light, and landscape. The commission opportunity radiates outward, incorporating up to sixteen trees with tree wells situated at each corner of the intersection. The trees provide shade and greenery, complementing the ficus tree in the Green Open Space. Artists or Artist Teams are encouraged to consider lighting features that highlight each tree and visually connect the Green Open Space at Washington & National Blvds. as one of the four corners of this intersection.
