The City of Santa Clarita’s Arts Commission moved forward on two agenda items during their July Arts Commission meeting. The Commission selected finalists for a new public art piece for the City’s Sports Complex Aquatics Center and a name was selected for the City’s new arts foundation.
The Arts Commission selected three finalists to move into the second phase of the Aquatics Center wall mural project, which is concept design. Each artist will create a detailed conceptual design proposal, which needs to be submitted to the Arts Commission by September 9.
Commissioner’s will evaluate the finalist’s proposals and determine the winning artist at the September 16 Arts Commission meeting. The art project is scheduled to begin in October with a completion deadline for the project by November 12.
