The City of Fremont, California is seeking artist proposals for the commission of an innovative and permanent public art installation for a new outdoor plaza, Inspiration Plaza, in south Fremont. The artist will design, fabricate, and install the artwork. The area for the artwork is approximately 100 square feet. This opportunity is open to all professional artists nationwide at least 18 years of age. The budget is $160,000. Inspiration Plaza is part of a new mixed-use development currently under construction, Embark Apartments, located at 44758 Old Warm Springs Boulevard in Fremont’s new Warm Springs Innovation District. The development will include 524 residential apartments and 8,000 square-feet of retail space. Inspiration Plaza will be privately owned but publicly accessible open space. The space is intended to become the “heart” of the neighborhood. It will be activated by retail, seating, and space for events. The development is anticipated to be complete by summer 2020.
