Downtown Public Art Project at 3rd & Bush

The City of Santa Ana sought qualified artists and artist teams to create eight panels of artwork in the City’s historic downtown at East 3rd and North Bush Streets. The artwork is now displayed on the building’s exterior walls of the City's public restroom for visitors to the downtown area. 

There was an initial review by an independent panel, where artists were selected and invited to present renderings and detailed work proposals for further review by the Arts & Culture Commission. The selected artists received a grant for their designs. These artworks were transferred onto vinyl wraps and then mounted onto metal panels. Lighting was added to enhance the artwork as well as provide safety for visitors to the site in the evening.

APPLICATIONS FOR THIS PROJECT ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED.
