Burbank extends deadline for Korean art commission

Burbank officials have extended a deadline for applications from artists for a commission celebrating 50 years of being a "sister city" with Incheon, South Korea.

Incheon Mayor Young-Gil Song proposed that the two cities exchange sculptures of art and cultural delegations to commemorate the anniversary.

Burbank officials have been seeking credentialed artists in the greater Southern California region to create the city's art piece according to the theme "friendship."

City officials have not listed a budget for the project, but have said projects of a similar scale range from $40,000 to $60,000.

The deadline to apply was originally Sept. 9, but the city has extended that to 5 p.m. Friday. Applications must be received in the Library Services Department office by the deadline; postmarks are not acceptable, according to the announcement.

For more information, call (818) 238-5567.
