The Oak Knoll Retail Village is comprised of a full-service grocery, restaurants and retail shops providing services to the Oak Knoll and surrounding communities. At the heart of the Retail Village is an intimately scaled pedestrian plaza featuring a landscape of mature oaks. The plaza will provide expanded frontage for retail and restaurant facades, outdoor dining, and a place for neighbors to meet and socialize. Main street, adjacent to the plaza will be designed to allow the plaza to expand for events such as farmers’ markets.
SunCal is seeking an artist or a team of artists who will create permanent art that is integrated into the plaza design. Art opportunities may include, but are not limited to, sculptural overhead elements, light environments or designs that are incorporated into the plaza hardscape and landscape. The art must exhibit strengths from a variety of perspectives and be sensitive to the pedestrian setting. Artists will work with SunCal architects and engineers to successfully integrate the installation. Materials selected must be appropriate for a high-use environment, weather resistant and low maintenance.
