Call to Artists

The City of Manhattan Beach Cultural Arts Commission is seeking artwork for the Biennial Sculpture Garden Exhibition. Responding to the City Council’s work plan, the Sculpture Garden Program was originated in 2009 as a temporary outdoor exhibition. This program aims to increase interest in our community for public art and offer artists a unique opportunity to showcase their original sculptural work to the Manhattan Beach community and its thousands of visitors. If you are interested in submitting a proposal for the Sculpture Garden, please review the guidelines on the Sculpture Garden - Call to Artists webpage.

Sculpture Garden Program

2018 celebrates the Sculpture Garden Program’s sixth temporary biennial exhibition. The City Council’s directive to initiate the Sculpture Garden Program has brought art into the community’s daily life. The City’s vision for the Sculpture Garden is to enhance the community setting by displaying a variety of inspiring artworks. The sculptures will attract viewers and invite dialogue while offering an opportunity to gain understanding and awareness of the visual arts through open access and educational material.

The Cultural Arts Commission serves as an advisory committee and implements programs approved by City Council. The Commission is an advocate of the power art has in creating opportunities for Cultural tourism, economic development, and image building. Cultural and artistic resources enhance the quality of life for individuals living in, working in, and visiting the city.

The Sculpture Garden Program is supported by the City’s Public Art Trust Fund. The Trust Fund is funded by a 1% development fee and does not impact the general fund.

GOALS
To create a successful temporary Sculpture Garden Program series that will:

  • Enhance our City with a variety of unique original artwork
  • Be an expression of our theme relating to Manhattan Beach 
  • Fit the criteria of the Public Art Master Plan
