All California and US-based artists are invited to submit their qualifications for inclusion in the Sacramento Artist Roster. Public artists and studio artists are encouraged to apply.
The Sacramento Office of Arts + Culture manages the Art in Public Places Program for the City of Sacramento. The Artist Roster will primarily serve as a resource for selecting artwork through a public panel selection process.
Sacramento Office of Arts + Culture reserves the option of using the Artist Roster as the sole resource for identifying appropriate artists for a project, or in combination with an explicit artist call that has been posted. The Office of Arts + Culture will continue to post Calls for Artists Projects when appropriate.
Once an artist is accepted, they are retained on the Roster until it expires at the end of December 2025. All artists will be notified to reapply in September of 2025 for a new Roster. While the Roster is active, a call will open every September for additional artists to be added. Artists already accepted on the Roster during the initial call, do not need to reapply until the roster is completely refreshed in 2025. Accepted artists on the Roster may request to update their information and artwork at any time during the roster period.
