Call for Local Artists to Submit Artwork for the City of Malibu’s Next Public Art Exhibition in City Hall Gallery, “Art of Surf,” with a Public Opening Reception June 25
In tribute to Malibu’s deep roots in surfing culture, the City of Malibu Arts Commission invites local Malibu artists to submit artwork for consideration to be featured in the next public art exhibition in the Malibu City Hall Gallery, “Art of Surf.”
“Surfing is in Malibu’s DNA, and Malibu has played an important role in the history and culture of surfing, so it’s a natural subject for our local artists to take on,” said Mayor Paul Grisanti. “I hope everyone in Malibu will join us for the opening reception, and come see the art exhibition and enjoy Malibu’s own surf art.”
The exhibition will be on display from July through August 2022, Monday through Friday, from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Admission to the gallery is free. The Malibu City Gallery is located at City Hall 23825 Stuart Ranch Rd., Malibu, CA 90265.
The Malibu Arts Commission invites the community to the opening reception on Saturday, June 25 at 11:00 AM. The Commission will celebrate the artists and Malibu’s surf culture and provide complementary food and beverages.
The deadline to submit artwork is Tuesday, May 31, 6:00 PM. Visit the website to submit artwork and see the art guidelines. Original art in all mediums will be considered. Artists may submit a maximum of three pieces for consideration and will be notified by June 10 of the status of their application.
