Japanese American Cultural & Community Center (JACCC) and Little Tokyo Business Association (JACCC) in collaboration with Sustainable Little Tokyo invites artists deeply rooted in Little Tokyo to submit two-dimensional plans, sketches/drawings, images, or renderings as proposals for two art commissions that explores the past, present, and future of our community:

Little Tokyo Open: The Art of Mini Golf will transform open space within the Little Tokyo district into a pop-up nine-hole miniature golf course, connecting two plazas—Frances Hashimoto Plaza and JACCC Plaza—into one contiguous play area. The mini-golf course will temporarily take place on two consecutive weeks, April 14–15 and 21–22, 2018. 

  • 9 artists/art groups will be selected and given options for one of nine prefabricated mini-golf holes (approx. 8x12’ with varying shapes) to create props and obstacles (e.g. tunnels, bridges, loops, etc.) and/or other sculptural elements on and around the hole. 
  • Selected artists will receive a $500 commission fee with up to $500 fabrication/materials budget for a total of up to $1000. The artist is responsible for the construction, fabrication, and installation of the artwork.
