Additional Art in the City Galleries:
The Art in City Hall program was instituted with the opening of the Redding Civic Center in 2000. The Redding Civic Center serves as the City's primary place of business and sees an estimated 1,200 persons enter the building each weekday. The building spans three stories, is approximately 100,000 square feet and hosts more than 500 feet of gallery railing.
In 2010 the program was renamed Art in the City in honor of our expansion to the new Redding Library. Since 2,000, over 1,700 pieces of artwork from more than 140 artists have been on exhibit and many pieces have been sold. The City collects no commission on the sale of exhibited art.
The artwork on display is carefully selected by the Art in Public Places Committee to provide an engaging experience for your enjoyment.
New exhibits are typically hung in January, May and September, although this schedule is subject to change for special showings. The annual Call to Artists is open each year from August 1 thru September 30 to select the exhibits for the following year. Submission requirements and application can be found here beginning August 1.
