Community Input – Charleston East Plaza Artwork

Burning Man Project is collaborating with Google on the process of bringing five new public artworks to the Charleston East plaza in Mountain View, California — the home of a new Google building in North Bayshore that will open in 2020. We hope for it to be the location for community gatherings where residents can enjoy art, and a beautifully landscaped plaza featuring one Anchor Artwork and four additional artworks that supplement the Anchor art.

We are seeking community input on the artworks featured below. Of these 28 artworks, 4 will be chosen to inspire curiosity, delight, and surprise, for all who find themselves visiting the Charleston East plaza, and Mountain View’s Shoreline area. These artworks are intended to foster a fun, dynamic, and approachable space where people will gather and stay to enjoy themselves.

We’d love to learn from you about the works you prefer and will appreciate any comments you wish to make about the artworks, including thoughts about which ones you’d like to see together. While these artists responded to two levels of call, one at a higher budget than the other, we’d like them to be thought about equally in terms of aesthetic and experiential value to the location, so we are sharing them on an equal plane.

Please tell us the projects you most favor by clicking the “Yep” or “Nope” buttons, and share any additional comments you may have. Your name, email, and input will not be publicly viewable. While this is not a “vote” or popularity contest, it is important for us to hear the thoughts and voices of the community — an intrinsic part of making the Charleston East Plaza a home for all who gather there; feel free to share this site with friends!

This is part of a series of community engagement opportunities to bring many voices into the art selection process. This form will be open until October 7th — feel free to share it with friends!
