City of Glendale Launches Temporary Public Art Project with AFTA Productions

Perhaps once known as the land of car dealers and malls just east of Silverlake, the City of Glendale has blossomed into an encouraging and supportive environment for the arts.  The city’s Arts and Culture Commission adopted their “Arts & Cultural Plan” in 2013.  The Plan is a comprehensive vision for arts and culture in Glendale to be implemented over the next 5 years.  Recent actions included the grand re-opening of the Brand Library & Art Center after their extensive renovations; and a utility box beautification program called “Beyond the Box”.  

Beginning this fall, local arts event producers, AFTA Productions, will curate 8 temporary public art installations from local artists throughout the city of Glendale over a twelve month period.  With the title “YOU ARE HERE”, AFTA Productions plays upon the geographic visual of a map and corresponding locations in Glendale. “YOU ARE HERE” lends itself to a literal translation of a specific destination on a map: an ideal graphic to chart the course of the city’s public art experience.  The program will create exterior temporary art installations or experiences for site-specific locations in Glendale’s arts & culture district, municipal district and areas of historic significance.

Artists interested in submitting proposals for the program can visit to learn how to apply.  Deadline to submit is September 8th.
