The Palm Desert Public Art Program invites professional artists who are proficient in planning, creating, and implementing public art to submit slides of their current work and a professional resume for inclusion in the Online Artist Registry.
All submissions are reviewed and approved by the Art in Public Places Commission. Developers and the Art in Public Places Commission utilize the registry as a resource to find artists for upcoming public art commissions.
Due to the lack of two-dimensional public art commissions, we respectfully request that painters, with the exception of muralists, no longer submit applications for the Artist Registry.
To be considered for the program, please email your materials to Amy Lawrence or send directly to the Public Art Department.
- 10-20 images of current art work in digital format. Images can be sent via email up to 5 at a time in jpeg format at 72 dpi. Each email should be no bigger than 4 megabytes. You may also send a CD via regular mail. Images on CD may be any size dpi.
- Professional resume including contact information, education, current and past showings, and any honors or awards.
- Image list including, title, date, materials, dimensions, and location
