The City of Newport Beach (City) is pleased to announce a call for entries for Round II of its inaugural Sculpture in Civic Center Park exhibition. Artists, private collectors, galleries and museums/non-profit institutions are invited to submit pre-existing artworks for consideration for temporary exhibition at the City’s Civic Center Park. This is a unique opportunity for artworks to be exhibited at the recently completed Newport Beach Civic Center and displayed in the serene, ocean-view park that is free and open to the public.
The 2015 call for artworks seeks ten more sculptures to be added to the park in August 2015 so that both sets of sculptures will be displayed together for a period of one year. In September 2016, the first round of artworks will be de-installed. The second round of artworks will remain installed until September 2017.

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.
