The City of Newport Beach (City) is pleased to announce a call for entries for its Invitational Sculpture Exhibition to further activate the splendor of the City’s Civic Center Park. Artists, private collectors, galleries, and museums/non-profit institutions are invited to submit artworks for consideration for a temporary exhibition at the site. This is a unique exhibition opportunity to display artworks in a serene, ocean view site that is a popular attraction for Newport Beach residents and tourists from around the world.
Up to ten artworks may be selected and prominently showcased for two years in the heart of Newport Beach in Civic Center Park. The 14-acre, ocean-view site was specially designed by renowned landscape architect Peter Walker as an intended sculpture garden. Participating artists will have an extraordinary opportunity to have their works experienced over an extended period in a city that is home to some of the world’s best-known major art collectors as well as the award-winning Orange County Museum of Art
The Civic Center Park has also developed into a destination for visitors and residents of Newport Beach to gather for civic events and activities including summer concerts on the lawn, art shows, docent led sculpture park tours, visits to the dog park, or leisurely walks along the park’s windy trail.
