Santa Barbara, CA
Public Art: Wayfinding Marker Along the California Coast
- Budget: $1500 per artist (up to three)
Eligibility: Open to artists and designers specializing in sculpting, environmental graphic design, and/or product design skills.
Thanks to a Community Arts Enrichment grant from the Santa Barbara County Office of Arts and Culture, Santa Barbara County Trails Council, in partnership with the National Park Service, is sponsoring a Call To Artists to develop a concept for a 3-dimensional trail marker symbolizing the rich history, culture and natural resources along the Santa Barbara County coast. The trail was established centuries ago by the Barbareǹo Band of Chumash Indians and now incorporates the Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail, California Missions Trail, and the California Coastal Trail. This iconic marker will provide guidance through urban and rural environments, and encourage visiting and exploring the California coast from Carpinteria to Guadalupe, with the potential to expand north and south of the County.
