The City of Vista’s Public Arts Commission has released a call to artists for entries in a public, temporary sculpture exhibit titled Kites Over Vista. The goal of the exhibit is to promote art in Vista, and to brand Vista as a home to a significant and dynamic collection of public artwork. Up to six artworks will be selected through a juried competition conducted by the City’s Public Arts Commission. The selected artists will agree to loan the artwork to the City for a minimum of 12 months with ownership rights remaining with the artists.

All models are due to the Vista Civic Center by 5 p.m. on Jan. 22 and the winning proposal will be chosen by Feb. 6 before being recommended to City Council for approval. The winning artist must be prepared to deliver their completed kite artwork for installation by May 1, 2018. For more information and a complete list of requirements for participation visit
