Share

Country:

Eligibility:

The State of California will implement a permanent Public Art Program in Sacramento in conjunction with two new build projects, the New Natural Resource Headquarters, and the Health and Human Services Building. The Public Art Program aims to inspire world-class public artworks, engaging diverse voices in shaping our civic spaces. It is an opportunity for artists to create within the rich contexts of the California Natural Resources Agency (CNRA), California Health and Human Services (CHHS). 

Four unique public art commission opportunities are open to artists through this Request for Qualifications (RFQ). A short-list of artists will be selected from the RFQ respondents and will be invited to participate in a funded proposal round, Request for Proposals (RFP). The final commissions will be selected and awarded from the proposing artists. 

We encourage artists to take time looking at each opportunity and applying to the commission that best suits their interests and practice. Artists may apply to more than one commission opportunity but must apply separately to each. Artists should submit Statements of Qualification (SOQ) with artwork samples and letters of interest relevant to the specific commission to which they are applying, even when applying to multiple commissions. We invite artists to engage critically with the mission of the California Natural Resource Agency and California Health and Human Services, as well as the vision outlined in the Public Art Plan.

Portobello Wall Public Art Project

The Portobello Wall Public Art Project is an annual public art commission for a stretch of brick wall linking two of the most vibrant and well known market areas in London: Portobello Road and Golborne Road. Since the introduction of this project in 2009, successful installations have created a visual link between these two unique markets, and attract over 1.3 million visitors each year.

The budget for the commission is £11,000 inclusive of all artists’ fees, materials, labour and outreach programme costs.

This 100-metre long stretch of wall has proved an ideal setting to promote the work of local artists and encourage visitors to continue their journeys further up Portobello Road to the vibrant Golborne area.

Find out more about the history of the project here.

2019 Commission Brief

THEME: This is the twelfth commission for the Portobello Wall Art Project, with the following theme: Rhythm and Sound. From the dance-steps and steel-pan beats of Notting Hill Carnival to the bustle and banter of Portobello and Golborne Road markets; from momentous performances at the Tabernacle to the original Rough Trade Record shop; Rhythm and Sound is woven into the rich cultural heritage, identity and place of North Kensington. We are looking for an engaging art installation that creatively interprets the theme, drawing inspiration from the distinctive and diverse nature of the area.

Proposals should include ideas for potential outreach events complementing the installation. These could include artists’ talks or tours, school workshops, in situ and in other locations in North Kensington. Prospective and confirmed partner organisations should be mentioned where applicable.

DEADLINE: Midnight Sunday 12 May 2019

Summary

Fine Artist in Painting
Exhibitions from October 1995 – Present  23 years

Chitra Ramanathan is a contemporary USA based visual artist and art educator. Her distinguished, predominantly large-scale abstract conceptual mixed media and acrylic paintings are in corporate and private collections as acquisitions, and featured as site-specific public art installations including murals.  The artist's formal professional connection occurred in 2005, with an invitation from the Keeper to the Royal Academy of Arts, London for a visual presentation of her body of thematic paintings with an artist talk, tour completed along with conducting student tutorials at the RA Schools. 

Chitra Ramanathan received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1993, majoring in Painting with honors, and her M.B.A in 1997 with concentrations in Human Resources and Art Museum Administration from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Following her B.F.A degree, her paintings were recognized by art critics through exhibitions on Broadway, New York, with numerous originals acquired within the U.S and abroad and site-specific public art commissions based on her style and concept. 

Interviews with the artist by eclectic publications with biography and images have been featured in various magazine and book publications include Who’s Who in America, Askart.com, the Internet Movie Database (IMDB), International Contemporary Artists, Vol 1. available on Amazon.com, the Indianapolis Business Journal, Indianapolis Monthly Home, Luxury Real Estate Magazine among others.

Public Art Commissions |Site-specific, Permanent and Temporary Installations

Treated with fresh bright colors and intricately interwoven textural materials, each unique, colorful piece is executed intuitively with rapid brush strokes. In many cases, the expansive scale or multi-paneled works are suitable for large venues such as lobby areas of public spaces. (Small-sized custom-created work have also been commissioned). The established artist's process evolves continually with each developing piece being infused with new art materials, the luminous surfaces treated with primarily acrylic mediums or mixed media, often dense with collage and imagery, and cutting-edge techniques.

Site-specific commissions in the United States include a pair of large signed acrylic and mixed media paintings housed in the Bellagio Conservatory at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada since 2004 at the request of MGM Resorts International, wall mural created at Crooked Creek Elementary School, Indianapolis, Indiana in 2008, a pair of large paintings featured in the College of Medicine at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Illinois since 1996, five large paintings commissioned by the Arts Council of Indianapolis as a temporary installation in downtown Indianapolis in 2006. Private commissions include a three paneled painting or triptych for the CEO of Biaggis Restaurant, Bloomington, Illinois in 2016 and large painting created for a private client in Boston, Massachusetts in February 2018.
