Community Call: Apply to be a part of a Roswell Arts Fund Public Art Selection Panel
Have you ever looked at Sentience in the Heart of Canton Street or Ask the Fish at Don White or the Ribbon bike racks at Riverside Park and wondered, “Who decided to put that there?” Answer: a selection panel made up of community members just like you!
The Public Art Program is seeking interested community members, artists, and arts professionals who live or work in Roswell to be involved in this exciting process*.
Each Selection Panel is comprised of a minimum of eight voting members with additional members added depending on the scope of the project. It is the role of the voting panelists to make decisions as a group concerning the final selection of the artist or artist team.
Roswell Arts Fund is committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion in all our programs, initiatives, and processes. For this reason, we request demographic information as it is important that we ensure a diversity of voices are represented in our programs and decision-making committees. Thank you for sharing information about yourself.
*Participation in this survey does not guarantee you will be asked to serve on a selection panel.
