Artists Sought For Storm Drain Art
Posted by Alex Nochez on Feb 4, 2014 - 10:05:09 PM

MALIBU — The city is looking for art to place on storm drains for a new public art campaign that began on January 31.
The design will be placed on these inlets.

An artist will be chosen by the city to design and paint a piece that emphasizes the “Keep It Clean” campaign, as well as environmental consciousness with an approach that will “broaden viewer's understanding of the connection between gutters, storm drains, and the ocean while also spotlighting local art,” according to an announcement on the city's website.

To apply for the project, hopeful artists will need to submit a project approach that includes the design's concept, the estimated timing of the project and the choice of materials, as well as visual representations of what the project will be. A plan for spills and the disposal of dirty water will also need to be included with the project proposal. The actual designs will be painted on the storm drain inlets at Cross Creek Road, Heathcliff Road at Point Dume Shopping Center, on the corner of Morning View Drive and Pacific Coast Highway and Trancas Park.

The city states in the instructions that the project will be chosen based on the quality of the design and must have a “two-year life expectancy.” These designs must emphasize the “Keep It Clean” campaign by including the website for it in the piece. The artist can sign his or her name on the artwork, if they so choose.

While the size of the piece is up to the artist, the city stresses that it must not be placed on the asphalt roadway. Instead, it can be placed on the sidewalk, the inlet lid or gutter. Once the piece is done, a clear sealant that will act as a protector will be placed over the design, and the artist must remain on-site until the protector coat dries.

The chosen design will receive $3,200 which will cover the cost of the project, including supplies, installation and touch-ups, if needed. To apply, submissions must be turned in by February 27 at 11:59 p.m. To fill out and submit an application, artists can visit
