The City of Malibu Cultural Arts Commission invites artists to submit their original art related to the Woolsey Fire to be included in the second installation of the City’s public art exhibit "Radical Beauty, Malibu Rising." The arts are an important part of life in Malibu, and artistic expression can have a valuable healing effect.
Submissions of original artwork will be accepted Friday, August 2 through Sunday, August 18, 2019. Local artists are encouraged to submit their paintings, photography, sculptures, short films, written work, poetry, and other art inspired by the Woolsey Fire. Artwork can be submitted online. To apply in person, visit Malibu City Hall, Community Services Department (23825 Stuart Ranch Road) during business hours. For more information, call 310-456-2489 ext. 350.
Due to the overwhelmingly positive response and community interest, the Cultural Arts Commission will curate the second installation of Radical Beauty, Malibu Rising. The first installation of Radical Beauty, Malibu Rising was a collaborative community exhibition which featured photography, paintings, drawing, sculpture, short films, and written work. It has been on display in City Hall since May 2019 and will conclude at the end of August 2019.
The second installation of Radical Beauty, Malibu Rising will be on display from September 23 through December 2019. The exhibit is free and open to all to view at City Hall Monday through Thursday, 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM and Friday 7:30 AM to 4:30 PM.
