From the return of the Sidewalk Poetry Project, to new calls for artists and the much-anticipated annual Fine Craft Show, which will take on a virtual format this year, the Santa Clarita Arts Calendar is “chalk”-full of events that will get your creative juices flowing.

Sidewalk Poetry

Call for Entry Now Open

The city of Santa Clarita is once again accepting short poem entries for the Sidewalk Poetry Project from residents and individuals with connections or ties to Santa Clarita. The Sidewalk Poetry Project stamps original poetry into sections of damaged sidewalks that are being rehabilitated. Selected poems may be placed near parks, bus stops, trailheads, crosswalks, schools, or shopping centers. The theme for 2021 is Poetry of Place and Community. Poems should reflect the cultural, natural and shared spaces in Santa Clarita. All writers, amateur and professional, are invited to submit poetry and the contest is open to all ages. Poems must be the original work of the entrant.
The entry deadline is December 15, 2020. Find more details and the submission form [here].

New Calls for Artists Now Open

There are multiple new public art projects underway in Santa Clarita that are now open for artist applications.

The indoor facilities include a gymnasium, fitness center, arts and crafts room, classroom, activity/multi-use rooms, and a teaching kitchen. Outdoor there is a play area and half basketball court, an event area, and a parking lot. As part of the new center, there will be several new public art pieces
