Public Art CA Open Call - Digital Art


Request for Proposals – Digital Media Wall
New Natural Resources Headquarters #142511

Released Wednesday, February 24th, 2021

The Media Wall open call for proposals (RFP) is part of the Public Art CA public art program, a contemporary collection of artworks commissioned for the California Natural Resources Headquarters and the California Health and Human Services building in downtown Sacramento.



The Media Wall Request for Proposals (RFP) is an opportunity that centers digital media within the CNRA public art collection. This opportunity embraces a contemporary and accessible concept of what public art is, who makes it, and for whom it is for. We seek to commission artists and artworks that consider experimentation, innovation, and inclusion as central components of creation.

The Media Wall RFP is open for artists to propose new or existing artworks to be shown on the expansive media wall located in the main lobby of the CNRA building. The artworks will be displayed on this 24 foot wide by 31.5-foot tall media wall on a curated schedule, during events, and at special public art program screenings. The media wall will also be utilized as a platform for CNRA news, and the sharing of agency-related information.

The opportunity is open to artists working in all forms of digital media including film and video, photography, animation, and other forms of digital media. Proposals are due May 14, 2021, by the end of the day (11:59 PM PST).
