The Palega Recreation Center in Portola Valley is in need of public art.
The City’s Arts Commission seems to think so. To remedy the situation, the commission has put out a request for proposals from artists to create a “durable artwork of the highest aesthetic quality.”
Palega is slated for a remodel by the Recreation and Park Department and the commission hopes to include a piece of art with the community room addition to the existing recreation center, relocation of playground and reconditioning of the landscape.
The project is open to artists along the West Coast — California, Oregon and Washington. The commission hopes to have a permanent piece in place by 2012.
