Downtown Village Art Project

T he City of Dublin invites artists with experience creating monumental sculptures to submit qualifications for an upcoming, large-scale public art project to be installed at the intersection of Dublin Boulevard and Village Parkway in the Downtown area of Dublin, California. From this list of qualified artists, the City will invite up to five artists to develop project specific proposals for consideration.

The City anticipates installing a monumental sculpture at the northwest corner of the intersection of Dublin Boulevard and Village Parkway. This location is within Downtown Dublin, and more precisely, the Village Parkway District, which is one of three Districts within our Downtown area. Village Parkway is a pedestrian-oriented District that also accommodates through traffic. The District is predominantly a commercial district, largely developed for retail, office, and certain automotive uses. This intersection is a highly visible location with significant vehicular and pedestrian traffic.

The artwork will be located at the southern end of Village Parkway, which in recent years has been branded as “The Village” with ornamental light poles and street banners. Although located at a large intersection, many community members consider The Village to be the main pedestrian area of Downtown due to its size compared to the other two Downtown Districts. It is worth noting that the Retail District is undergoing its redevelopment. It will be home to a new Town Square Park with surrounding housing and retail to serve as the City’s pedestrian-friendly and walkable Downtown.

The Village sits just east of the Retail District and is separated from the rest of the Downtown by I-680. As a result, there has been a concentrated effort to brand this area as The Village and bring an outdoor dining presence to the area, making it vibrant and walkable. It is anticipated that future artwork will help define this space further. Artists selected to develop site specific proposals will be asked to connect existing branding and signage.

The Vision for Downtown Dublin that includes all three Districts is a vibrant and dynamic commercial and mixed-use center that provides a wide array of opportunities for shopping, services, dining, working, living, and entertainment in a pedestrian-friendly and aesthetically pleasing setting that attracts both local and regional residents. As Downtown Dublin continues to develop, the City is committed to investing in Pubic Art to further carry out the goals of the Downtown Dublin Specific Plan and Dublin Public Art Master Plan.

The artist budget for the project is expected to be approximately $250,000 and will be awarded to a single artist. This budget is intended to be inclusive of all costs, including engineering, site preparation, fabrication, and installation. Detailed specifications and project scope will be shared with artists selected to develop site specific proposals.
