The City of Laguna Beach is taking applications for the 2011 artist-designed bench competition to replace the bus bench located on the inland side of Mountain Street and South Coast Highway.
Separately, the city’s Council Chamber banner competition is underway and resident artists are encouraged to submit their designs to the cultural arts department by July 8.
The bench competition is open to artists who live in Southern California. Competitors must submit applications by 5 p.m. Monday, July 18, to be reviewed by the Arts Commission and selected by the City Council.
Finalists will enter into a design contract to develop a proposal for the bench design and be awarded $300. An honorarium of $1,000 will be given for all completed banners selected. Once a design is selected, the artist will be provided with a canvas banner to be painted and completed with the artists’ signature.
