Rotary Groups Donate $60K for Public Art in Coffey Park

Fire-damaged Coffey Neighborhood Park

The City of Santa Rosa Public Art Program is excited to announce an additional $60,000 towards the Public Art Project slated for Coffey Neighborhood Park has been donated by two Rotary groups. The total available funding for the art project is now $110,000, including very generous donations of $50,000 from Rotary International District 5130 Sonoma County Fire Relief Committee, and $10,000 from Rotary Club of Santa Rosa West, as well as $50,000 from the City of Santa Rosa’s Public Art Fund. Due to this increased funding, a Call for Artists—to design, fabricate and install public art in the park—has been extended to February 28, 2019. Visit to download the Request for Qualifications and an application.

EligibilityThis commission is open to practicing, professional artists residing in California. 

Description of Project Opportunity: Coffey Neighborhood Park Public Art
The artist or artist team selected for this project will be required to undertake research and discussion with key stakeholders and thoughtfully engage the Coffey Park neighborhood to develop a concept proposal for the public art project. From preliminary surveys of the neighborhood, residents indicate a preference for interactive and functional public art, including playground equipment and seating. The public art should be integrated into the design of the park as much as possible. Design elements should reflect the identity and resiliency of the Coffey Park neighborhood and respectfully commemorate the Tubbs Fire. The City of Santa Rosa is currently working with a design team to redesign and rebuild the park. To find out more about the status of the park, visit:


Project LocationInstallation will be sited at Coffey Neighborhood Park (1524 Amanda Place, Santa Rosa, CA) in Northwest Santa Rosa. The park is located at the heart of the heavily fire-damaged Coffey Park Neighborhood.
