public-art.jpgRecommended artists’ proposals for the New Castro Valley Library are on display here at the Redwood Road location through November 24. Recommendations for commissions will be made to the Board of Supervisors at a public meeting December 4. Art Panels, made up of community members and Library staff, under the direction of the Alameda County Art Commission,  first reviewed artists’ applications  based on their body of work and portfolio submissions. Four finalists in each category (except small scale work) were invited to submit proposals. Proposals were subject to public review at a variety of venues with opportunity for feedback. Art Panels reconvened for a second all day session to review the public comments and listen to presentations by the artist themselves. Art installations will be commissioned for the Library entry exterior wall, creek side fence, new book area, children’s area and teen area. Three small scale works will be commissioned for various locations throughout the new building.
