ArtsWA board approves 2015 Public Artist Roster
The Public Artist Roster is the primary tool used by the Art in Public Places Program (AIPP) for artist selection for site-responsive, commissioned artworks. Each local Art Selection Committee chooses an artist from the Public Artist Roster based on a review of portfolios during a series of meetings facilitated by AIPP staff.
Every three years ArtsWA opens a public artist roster competition in which artists apply for placement on the roster. The competition ended June 23, 2015 with 438 applications. On July 21, 22 and 23, AIPP staff convened a panel of public art experts to review the applications and make recommendations to the ArtsWA Board. The Board approved the roster recommendations at its August 2-3, 2015 meeting.
