APPB News:

The Art in Public Places Board (APPB) has extended the application deadline for an “Open Call for Art/Ideas” to June 7.

Due to difficulties with email, those who previously submitted electronic proposals are asked to resubmit them to This email is now functioning correctly.

“Open Call for Art/Ideas” provides Los Alamos citizens the opportunity to suggest ideas or artwork that they would like added to the public art collection. This can include any suggestion that involves public art to beautify the community.

Artists and citizens are asked to recommend artwork, either existing or conceptual, for a specific public location in Los Alamos County. The purpose of this “Call for Art” is to gather public input for a varied and well-positioned public art collection.

Consideration will be given to projects of any scope and price as appropriate to location and concept.

Even though the APPB is soliciting suggestions and recommendations for public art, be aware that they are not bound to make selections or purchases from this solicitation. All submissions become public documents upon receipt.
