“Cityscapes and Streetscapes” Juried Exhibition
The City of Santa Clarita (City) is inviting artists to submit artwork for consideration for our upcoming “Cityscapes and Streetscapes” juried exhibition, which will be on view at the First Floor Gallery in Santa Clarita’s City Hall. We are seeking original artwork in any medium that explores the dynamic and evolving narrative of urban landscapes and the intricate streets that weave through them. Artwork should capture the essence of city life in its myriad forms – from quiet street corners to bustling populated streets. This is an opportunity to contribute to a visually compelling narrative that speaks not just to the aesthetics of cityscapes and streetscapes, but also to the human experiences and stories they encompass.

There is no comission due to the City.

Per City policy, our contract states that artwork must be on display during the duration of the exhibit, and cannot be removed earlier. This is standard procedures and expectations within the arts industry for exhibits. We proudly offer multiple exhibits around the City for local and nonresidents to showcase their artwork free of charge, in return we ask that our City’s policies are respected. Early removal of artwork before the exhibit has ended will affect an artist’s ability to participate in future opportunities with the City of Santa Clarita’s art exhibits programs.
