Freedom: A Shared Dream

EXTENDED Submission Period: May 1 - August 15, 2014

Farhang Foundation has announced an international art competition that aims to create a historic piece of public art that celebrates cultural freedom and religious tolerance as a monument to the ideals of Cyrus the Great, the Persian King from 2,500 years ago. The work will be gifted to the city of Los Angeles on behalf of the Iranian American community and will be permanently installed in the heart of Los Angeles, one of the most culturally diverse cities in the world. The final project should reflect the concepts of freedom and religious diversity, further a sense of spirit and unity, and resonate with people of all ages and backgrounds. This competition is open to experienced professional public art artists including sculptors or other visual art professionals, experienced with the design and implementation of public art projects, as well as the management of installation costs. For more information, including rules and guidelines, visit the official competition page here at Farhang.org/Freedom.
