Artwork needed for JPJ Complex

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

Construction of the Judicial/Police/Jail complex is well under way and county staff is already thinking up ways to beautify the building.

As part of the county’s effort to utilize public art to enhance the community, the Art in Public Places Board, at the direction of the county council, has put out a call for artists. Proposals are being solicited for artists interested in creating artwork for the JPJ Complex.

The facility will house police department personnel and will accommodate the community’s need for a jail facility. In addition, it will provide space for the courts division.

According to a press release, the council and board’s expectations are that the artwork will be exterior in nature and flush to the structure of the building, not something that cantilevers outward or hangs off of the building.

The county wants to address the blank walls that are part of the facility.

The county is open to any type of artwork, but it should be large enough so that the building wall won’t dwarf it.

The dimensions of the wall are 36 feet, 2 inches tall by 24 feet, 8 inches wide.
