Main Street Benches Project
Call for Artists

Scope of Project

As a continuation of, and in collaboration with The Main Street Merchants of downtown Palm Springs, the Palm Springs Public Arts Commission is excited to announce the third phase of the “artists painted” downtown bench project.
This phase is for the 16 benches located on North Palm Canyon from Alejo up to Tachevah. (11 benches without backs and 5 with backs)
This is an open call for artists who like to be considered for this phase of the project.  The deadline for photoshop proposals is Saturday, August 15th.
Please see the budget guidelines and a photoshop image as guidelines.
The project will be supervised by Tysen Knight, who painted the first set of benches, including proper materials, protective coating, and skateboard guards.
