YOU ARE HERE, curated/presented by AFTA Productions, will initiate the very first temporary public art program implemented in Glendale, CA. A total of 8 works will be selected to create exterior temporary art installations or experiences for site-specific locations in Glendale’s arts & culture district, municipal district and areas of historic significance. Individual artists or artist teams may submit existing works for consideration or propose new concepts for installations.
The program’s goal is to enhance Glendale’s reputation as an arts destination, offer an engaging experience to residents and attract visitors from neighboring communities.
The brand concept for YOU ARE HERE plays upon the geographic visual of a map and corresponding locations in Glendale. YOU ARE HERE by name association alone lends itself to a literal translation of a specific destination on a map, an ideal graphic to chart the course of the city’s public art experience. YOU ARE HERE will profile Glendale as a creative destination to discover and explore.
