"Public Art Exhibit" Artists Invited to Participate

The City of Moreno Valley is currently accepting applications from artists to display their artwork through a new Art Loan Policy adopted by City Council earlier this year. The City's Arts Commission will review all works of art submitted for exhibition. The commission will judge the appropriateness of each piece based on common sense and an eye for family-friendly works.

The policy allows works strictly from artists, living or dead, connected to Moreno Valley through residency, work or birth. The primary points of the policy include:

  • The City's Arts Commission will review all works of art submitted for exhibition at a city facility. They will then make a recommendation to the City Manager who will have the final authority to approve all artwork prior to being loaned to the City for display.
  • All artists will need to reside, work, or have been born in Moreno Valley. These requirements also apply to works of art submitted by family members of deceased artists.
  • Works of art that are deemed too large or difficult to display, contain materials which are inherently dangerous or unstable, or are made out of materials that may decay if not kept displayed in the optimum environmental conditions will not be displayed.
  • The Arts Commission will evaluate each work of art for quality, style, the type of media the artwork is displayed on, the nature of the artwork, and diversity in order to make a recommendation to the City Manager for all exhibits at city facilities.

The deadline for submittal is December 08, 2011. Art pieces will be displayed January 1-March 31.

Applications are available @ For more information contact Moreno Valley Parks and Community Services at 951.413.3280.
