See below for more information about a Call to Artists.

The Civic Art Program is establishing a high-caliber Resource List of Pre-Qualified Artists which will be used to select artists for the majority of new County projects.


This call is open to professional emerging and established visual artists and artist teams with no geographic limits. Artists working in all media are encouraged to apply. If artists are applying to the Resource List as a team, the team must be declared at the time of application in the letter of interest.

Applications must be submitted through the Call for Entry (CAFÉ) online application system managed by the Western States Arts Federation (WESTAF). Artists will create a personal account (free of charge) with CAFÉ in order to access the full application. Please visit www.callforentry.org to set up your account. Once you create a personal CAFÉ account, your contact information, resume, references, and images are saved for easy access when applying to future calls through CAFÉ.

To find our full Call, go to www.callforentry.org. Once you have created a personal account, go to "CAFE Listings" and click the "Los Angeles County: Resource List of Pre-Qualified Artists" Call.
