Who decides what the art looks like

Who Decides What the Art Looks Like?

  • Site location sponsor identifies type (interior/exterior/2D or 3D) of work that is most suitable to location

  • Citizens in public meetings frame what the inspiration and theme of the work should be (history/environment/other)

  • Staff draft a “call for artists”

  • Artists respond to the themes and ideas chosen by citizens and produce a unique concept proposal

  • Citizens serve on a selection panel and review artist submissions and recommend artist finalists

  • Metro Arts Commission approves recommendation and issues a contract for the winning artist idea/concept

  • The artist fabricates their work based on the concept
