Seacliff Village Park Public Art Project

An artist will be selected to create a site-specific public art component for Phase 2 development of Seacliff Village Park.

The proposed site-specific artwork should enhance the experience of park visitors of all ages, and take into account the coastal setting and the surrounding community. Proposals must focus on the exterior walls of the restroom building.  Artists may choose to create a mural, mosaic, or low-relief sculpture on one, two, or all three of the exterior building walls, as shown in the "Call to Artists". Proposals are due October 11 by 5:00 p.m. Questions? Email

Background - Seacliff Village is located in Aptos at the corners of Sea Ridge Rd., Canterbury Rd., and McGregor Drive.  Development of the 1.25 acre park is occurring in phases, as funding allows.  Seacliff Village Park has created a community hub, providing a much-meeded gathering place for indviduals and families to recreate.  Phase 1, completed in 2015, included play structures, walking paths, a picnic area, benches, bike racks, and a temporary restroom.  Phase 2 includes the contruction and installation of a permanent public restroom, replacing the existing temporary restroom. Three exterior walls of the public restroom will provide an opportunity for public artwork.  The permanent restroom will be placed in approximately the same location as the temprary restroom.  Future phases of the park may include a skate feature, shade structures and a small amphitheater.
