As described above, the Foundation and the City are collaborating on an exciting new Temporary Outdoor Sculpture Program that will bring five artworks to our downtown area for the pubic to enjoy.
The first five sculptures have been selected, with the City’s Arts Advisory Committee recommending the artworks, the the City Council approving them on September 7. Installation of the sculptures is tentatively scheduled for Sept. 28-30, and the Del Mar Art Walk, a self-guided 1-mile walk to see these sculptures and other works in the permanent collection of the City of Del Mar and Del Mar Plaza, will kick off on October 3 with Artists’ Reception at the Civic Center plaza. The Art Walk Map will be available at the reception, and will also be available here, once the sculptures are in place.
Artists’ Reception: Sign up for our email list (use the button at the end of this page) for an email invitation to the Artists’ Reception, with a link to RSVP. Note that proof of full vaccination will be required for this event.

Additional information about the Temporary Outdoor Sculptures Program: The Call for Art, issued on July 6, 2021, resulted in the submission of a diverse and fascinating group of sculptures for consideration for this program. Interested in seeing the sculptures that the City’s Arts Advisory Committee (AAC) considered at its August 25, 2021 meeting? Check them out in the Art Submissions PDF. Find the AAC’s agenda and related materials here.
The deadline for submission of artworks was August 6, 2021. The fact that 20+ artists submitted more than 30 sculptures for considerations is proof that we live in a vibrant creative community! See the Call for Art.
