Artist Opportunities

Artist Opportunities

The Public Art Program works extensively with local, regional and national artists to bring permanent and temporary artworks that build the visual identity and reflect the diverse and exciting environment of the City of Palo Alto. Through its Percent for Art Program, the City provides opportunities for artists to create original works of art that comprise Palo Alto's rapidly growing collection of permanent and portable artworks.

All calls for upcoming public art projects are available on this page. If you would like to receive information about future art opportunities join our mailing list

Artists who wish to be considered for public art opportunities associated with construction in private development projects, contact Elise DeMarzo by email.
