Artists Encouraged to Enter Palmdale’s Courson Park Pool Mural Competition:Theme is “Aquatics

The City of Palmdale is seeking entries for its Courson Park Pool mural competition.

“We’re looking for an artist and/or artist led team to create a piece of art that will be featured within the perimeter of the Courson Park Pool, on the interior wall facing west,” said Palmdale’s Public Art Coordinator, George Davis.

The mural theme is “Aquatics.” When completed, the mural will encompass a 31‐feet wide by 9‐feet tall area and will be a 2-dimensional project.

The selected artist or team will be awarded with a $1,800 stipend as well as $400 for supplies furnished by the City’s Public Art Committee.

The contest is free and open to all Antelope Valley residents 18 years of age and older. The deadline for submissions is Monday, June 8 at 6 pm.

“We need to add a finishing touch to the Courson Park Pool,” Davis said. “An aquatics themed mural will anchor the environment and add a nice splash of color to the pool setting.”

About the City’s Public Art Program

As the City of Palmdale continues to strategize effective methods to increase community engagement, pride and identity, public art emerged as a practical and creative outlet to both engage and inspire the community.

The enthusiasm and support for public art prompted the City to develop a strategic approach to how it will fund, manage, and review public art projects going forward.  Many reoccurring themes were identified to include beliefs that public art promotes experiential learning, celebrates the spirit of creativity, defines neighborhoods, reinforces a sense of community pride and provides a connection to local history and culture.  Key recommendations in the Public Art Master Plan are to use public art as a tool for community empowerment, to enhance neighborhood character, and for equitable geographic distribution of artwork to residents citywide.
