2018 Town Center Art Space Exhibitions

The City of Santa Clarita Arts and Events Office (AEO) and the Santa Clarita Arts Commission (SCAC) are seeking artists or artist teams to design and display art exhibits of various types at the Westfield Valencia Town Center Art Space.  This is an opportunity for artists located in Los Angeles and Ventura County.

 

Project Description

For the past seven years, the City of Santa Clarita and Westfield Valencia Town Center have collaborated on bringing quality art experiences to the public.  The Town Center Art Space, which is an open 20 x 20 foot space on the lower level of the mall adjacent to the food court and just outside of Sisley Restaurant, has been used for this purpose.  The AEO is seeking exhibition proposals from individuals for this space for the upcoming season of displays (January 2018 through mid-November 2018).  Sculpture and installation work are encouraged.  Paintings and other 2D work are not accepted for consideration.  Exhibits will be featured for four months at the space.
