  • Brief Description

    In 2023, the California Department of Transportation (CalTrans) will begin construction on the Solstice Canyon Creek Bridge Replacement Project located at Pacific Coast Highway and Corral Canyon Road. The project will replace the existing bridge and culvert, allowing for proper drainage and improved hydraulic conditions for Solstice Canyon Creek. Additionally, the new culvert will facilitate the movement of the area's endangered steelhead trout population and serve as a pedestrian underpass to Dan Blocker State Beach with a public art component.

    The Malibu Arts Commission is looking for an artist to create artwork for the newly constructed pedestrian underpass at Solstice Canyon Creek. The artwork will be no greater than 130' in length by 6' in height and should be constructed from durable material that is salt tolerant. The Clean California Program has provided a grant for the project, and artists should select a medium and theme centered around one of the following:

    • Malibu's Marine Habitat
    • Solstice Canyon Area
    • Steelhead Trout
