Freedom: A Shared Dream

Deadline for Phase II: October 27, 2014

In May of this year, Farhang Foundation launched an international urban art competition, seeking submissions from professional artists for a site-specific artwork that commemorates the ideals of Cyrus the Great. Upon completion, this artwork will be gifted by Farhang Foundation to the city of Los Angeles on behalf of the Iranian American community. We were overjoyed by the outpouring of enthusiasm for this competition and received nearly 300 applications! The submissions deadline officially ended August 15, 2014 and we are now inviting qualifying applicants to participate in Phase II of the competition by submitting a brief narrative along with sketches. The deadline for Phase II is October 27, 2014. Learn more about this historic project at Farhang.org/Freedom and stay tuned for more updates.
