SCULPTURE IN THE CIVIC CENTER PARK EXHIBITION- PHASE II

In August 2013, the Newport Beach City Council authorized the City Arts Commission and City staff to implement a temporary sculpture exhibit in Civic Center Park. The City Council approved the installation of ten sculptures in Phase I of the project and additional ten sculptures in Phase 2. The sculptures installed in year one are on display for two years and will be removed and returned to the artists in 2016. Those installed in year two, or Phase 2, will be removed in 2017. The ten sculptures selected for installation in September 2015 are shown in this Phase 2 Presentation.

SCULPTURE IN THE CIVIC CENTER PARK EXHIBITION - I

The Newport Beach City Arts Commission hosted a grand opening celebration for the inaugural Sculpture in the Civic Center Park Exhibition on September 13, 2014. The Sculpture in the Newport Beach Civic Center Park Exhibition prominently showcases ten works of art, selected by a panel of art jurors, for a period of two years (Summer 2014-Summer 2016) in the heart of Newport Beach at the Civic Center Park. The 14-acre, ocean-view site was specially designed by renowned landscape architect Peter Walker as an intended sculpture garden.

A presentation of the selections was made before City Council and approved for installation in May 2014. Installation of nine of the sculptures in the Civic Center Park was completed in September 2014.  "Red" which required some refurbishing after its prior installation, will be installed in February 2015.
