The Public Artist Roster is a pre-qualified list of professional visual artists. These artists are eligible to create site-responsive works of art for K-12 public schools, colleges, universities, and state agencies. Art in Public Places (AIPP) project managers facilitate this process.
Every three years, AIPP holds a call to select artists for the Public Artist Roster. A panel made up of artists and arts professionals reviews applications. Each applicant’s experience and technical abilities are factors in this review process. The panel then makes recommendations to the ArtsWA board.
The ArtsWA Board approved the current Public Artist Roster at its August 2018 meeting.
