MCASB invites proposals for a large-scale, outdoor, traveling pavilion ​to be built and installed at each site of its new public art program, TakePart/MakeArt. As a central feature of TakePart/MakeArt, the mobile pavilion will be a bold and vibrant beacon for MCASB as it travels through three different communities across Santa Barbara County: Isla Vista, the Westside, and the Waterfront.

By contributing new design to Santa Barbara - a tourist destination and location steeped in California Mission Style architecture and culture - the pavilion serves as an aesthetic catalyst for experimental, dynamic, and engaged artworks, which will be realized by six innovative contemporary artists over the two-year course of TakePart/MakeArt. As such, the Pavilion Design Competition motivates architects and designers to think about how design encourages communities to participate with their surroundings, as well as how it can facilitate new ways of interacting with contemporary art and artists.

Submissions are due April 21, 2016. A jury consisting of architects, artists, scholars, and design experts will select and announce the winning proposal on May 9, 2016. The winner will receive an award of $5,000 and an additional $45,000 to support their projects. The winning proposal team will then work with MCASB curators to permit, build, and install the final design for the inaugural TakePart/MakeArt event in October 2016.
