Palo Alto to choose resident design for local fountain
on Tuesday,January 18,2011 21:01
Many individuals who have a passion for the arts do not necessarily make a career out of it. However, Palo Alto city commissioners are giving residents the opportunity to gain notoriety for their talents by hosting a new project.
Recently, city officials asked Palo Alto residents to submit their best designs for a new fountain to be constructed near Caltrain Station, according to the San Jose Mercury News. Now, the competition will be narrowed down to three designs that would cost $50,000 or less to be constructed.
Bay Area sculptor Bruce Beasley presented city officials with a design in 2008, but it was rejected due to the $185,000 it would have taken to develop the fountain. Submissions by Mark Oldland, Michael Szabo and Jennifer Madden are now the finalists in the design competition to replace the piece that has been in existence since the 1970s.
"It adds something to the neighborhood," resident Robert Emmet told the news source. "How many places do you have a fountain? I think it's good for the street."
Employment of artists is projected to increase by 12 percent over the next seven years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
