The City of Redmond has been supporting a public art program since 2006, with the successful procurement of numerous pieces of public art assessed at approximately $675,000.
In 2011, the City of Redmond initiated an Outdoor Public Art Gallery program, Art Around the Clock. The first round of sculptures were installed in July, 2011 and were extremely well-received by the community, resulting in the purchase of a People’s Choice sculpture as well as another participating sculpture. Marketing is provided through the Redmond Chamber of Commerce, the Redmond Airport and local media outlets, as well as promotional material and collateral provided by the City of Redmond.
The objectives of the Art Around the Clock program is to continue to build a permanent art collection for the City of Redmond while providing an opportunity for artists to market their art. Additionally the program is intended to create a sense of identity, place and culture for the community of Redmond and provide an opportunity for the community to interact with artists and public art.
Concrete pedestals to support the Art Around the Clock have been designed and installed throughout the pedestrian friendly downtown core. This round will also feature pedestals and installations at the Redmond Roberts Field Airport and the Redmond Fire and Rescue District Headquarters.
