Opportunities for Artists

The City of San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture administers competitions to select artists to create artwork for selected capital improvement projects. When available, notices about these competitions will be posted to this web page and advertised in the media. Additionally, Commission staff keeps a database of artists' email addresses and occasionally sends out news of opportunities for artists via email. If you would like to receive news of opportunities for artists via email, please submit your contact information to Linda Sokol at

Learn about new opportunities as soon as they're announced. Follow Dana Springs on Twitter. Follow Dana Springs on Twitter
