Local Artists Invited to Reimagine 'Welcome' Signs

Dec 06, 2023 03:34PM ● By City of Yuba City News Release

YUBA CITY, CA (MPG) - The City of Yuba City is thrilled to announce a unique opportunity for local artists to showcase their talents in a project aimed at redesigning the iconic “Welcome” signs situated at key entry points to the City.

Yuba City currently boasts two distinctive welcome signs, strategically positioned at the southwest intersection of Township Road/State Route 20 and approximately 1,100 feet southeast of the Bogue Road/Hwy 99 intersection. The existing monument sign's masonry style base is planned to be retained, though artists are encouraged to consider alternative concepts in case the existing base proves impractical.

The primary objective of this “Call for Artists” is to solicit design proposals for a new sign that can be mounted onto the existing masonry style base and electrical source, if feasible. The winning design will receive a $200 cash prize and recognition by the City Council.

Artists are invited to infuse their creativity into designs that reflect the rich diversity and cultural history of Yuba City while respecting the City brand. The themes to be explored include Yuba City's natural beauty, incorporating elements such as the Feather River, Sutter Buttes and local wildlife, as well as the city's early agricultural settlement, history, and ethnic diversity.

The proposed monument sign should meet or exceed specific design criteria outlined by the City, including a multi-faced structure with welcoming messages, architectural elements and adherence to City branding materials and colors. Full details are provided in the submission guidelines.

Interested artists are invited to submit their proposals by 11:59 pm on January 15, 2024. The selection process will involve judging by the City of Yuba City, with the final decision made by the City Council. The winning artist(s) will be announced at the February 20, 2024 City Council meeting.

To participate, artists should complete the “Design Competition Entry Form” and submit up to three (3) sign concept submissions, either as original drawings or digital images. Submissions can be mailed or dropped off at City Hall, located at 1201 Civic Center Blvd., Yuba City, CA 95991, attention Ashley Potočnik, or emailed to [email protected] with the subject line “Yuba City Welcome Sign.”

You can find the complete submission guidelines online at www.yubacity.net.

The City of Yuba City eagerly anticipates the collection of local artistic talent into this exciting project, contributing to the city's vibrant identity and welcoming spirit.
