Brief Description

The City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA), Public Art Division, is seeking professional artists interested in creating permanent public art for the new Wilmington Waterfront Promenade (“WWP”), a project of the Port of Los Angeles. This public art opportunity for the WWP is administered by DCA, in compliance with the City’s Public Percent for Art policy and in partnership with the Port. The WWP will be a total of 363,000 square feet and its design includes a combination of passive and active outdoor spaces such as walking trails, picnic areas, and playgrounds. The WWP is the second phase of the Port’s implementation of the Wilmington Waterfront Master Plan adopted in 2007. The WWP was designed to connect local residents and regional visitors to the water, , and it aligns with the core goals of the Mayor’s 2015 Sustainable City Plan: Environment, Ecology, and Equity.
