The City of Vista’s Public Arts Commission has released a call to artists for public art projects including information kiosk art panels on Paseo Santa Fe, design ideas for an art installation at the roundabout on Paseo Santa Fe, and entries for the eighth exhibition of Kites Over Vista. The information kiosk art panel project will consist of 12 panels and suggested mediums are mosaic tile, ceramic, fused glass, or paint, as the panels must be suitable for outdoor use. Submissions will be accepted until Oct. 2. Criteria for Kites Over Vista entries include artistic merit, public safety, appropriateness of the artwork, materials used, and artist resume. All models are due to the Vista Civic Center by 5 p.m. on Jan. 25 and the winning artist must be prepared to deliver their completed kite artwork for installation by May 2. The proposal deadline for the Paseo Santa Fe roundabout art installation is Sept. 28.
