  • Brief Description

    As part of a community-driven effort to renovate and enliven N Street Park, the City of Davis and its partner, the Davis Manor Neighborhood Council (DMNC), will commission a professional artist or team of artists to design, fabricate, and install a permanent work of public art. The public art will visually and functionally enhance a small performance area and include two elements: 1) an open-form metal superstructure for lighting and theatrical armature and 2) an open-form metal screen for backstage definition. A combined budget of up to $45,000 is available for these two elements. The created work will serve as a visual focal point, drawing visitors into this small artistically designed and art-filled park and supporting and enhancing a variety of activities on the performance stage. Within the technical and safety constraints of the project, the artist/team will be at liberty to explore their own artistic vision in partnership with a dynamic team of resident visionaries and within a neighborhood community that has become a local model for community-based design and activism.
