LAH art committee issues call for artists
The Los Altos Hills Public Art Committee encourages local artists to submit applications for inclusion in a new digital art gallery project.
The gallery, available at losaltoshills.ca.gov/417/Digital-Gallery-Art-by-Local-Artists, aims to complement the physical public art the committee places on town lands and is intended as a nod to the town’s place in Silicon Valley.
Although Los Altos Hills residents will receive priority, artists from other cities will be considered.
There is no application or display fee, and artists retain full copyright to their work. Each online display will be showcased for 30 days.
To review submission guidelines, visit losaltoshills.ca.gov and enter “digital art gallery artist submission guidelines” in the search bar.
