STOREFRONT ART PROGRAM

OVERVIEW

Glendale's Storefront Art Program is a year-round program in partnership with property owners, realtors, retailers, brokers, and developers in Glendale.

The goal of Glendale's Storefront Art Program is to create professional-quality art installations celebrating the surrounding community, thereby increasing the interest of passersby, enriching Glendale's cultural environment, and creating a strong  community identity.

Glendale’s Storefront Art Program is returning this summer with two brand-new installations inside vacant units within the Glendale Galleria, featuring work by local artists, Matthew Pagoaga and Laurie Shapiro. 

 

Enjoy an art-walk in the Galleria on the evening of Saturday, August 6th from 5pm - 7pm for a chance to meet with the artists and enjoy refreshments.

 

This installation of the Storefront Art Program will be on display from August 1, 2022 – August 31, 2022. Visitors may interact with the artwork during the Glendale Galleria’s operating hours.

Under this Call for Artists (“CFA”), the Library, Arts & Culture Department (“Library”) of the City of Glendale (“City”)— on behalf of the City’s Arts & Culture Commission (“ACC”) — is accepting proposals from qualified candidates who would like to participate in the Storefront Art Program.  Submissions are ongoing.

The ACC will provide an artist stipend of $1,000 in addition to a production stipend of up to $1,500 for a total maximum stipend of $2,500 per participating artist. The installations may be exhibited for a minimum of 6 weeks.

The Glendale Storefront Art Program is sponsored by the Glendale Arts and Culture Commission, through funding from the Urban Art Program with support from Glendale Library, Arts & Culture.
