  • Brief Description

    The Library and the ACC have designed a program to support public art and to further beautify the City of Glendale through art installations in vacant storefronts. The vision of Glendale's Storefront Art Program is to create professional quality art installations celebrating the surrounding community, thereby increasing the interest of a passersby, enriching Glendale's cultural environment, and creating a strong community identity. The program goal is to expand storefront art installations throughout the City in partnership with property owners, realtors, and developers.
    Selected artists will be scheduled for an interview to discuss the proposed location for installation. Site visits will be scheduled with selected artists and City Staff to determine the appropriateness of the proposed installation within the vacant unit. The ACC will provide an artist stipend of $1,000 in addition to a production stipend of up to $1,500 for a total maximum stipend of $2,500 per participating artist. The installations may be exhibited for a minimum of 6 weeks.
