Call for Applicants :: Edmonton Arts Council Public Art Selection Committee Roster

The Edmonton Arts Council (EAC), on behalf of the City of Edmonton, requests applications from Edmonton-based arts professionals and arts-oriented community members to be included on our Public Art Selection Committee roster. Selection Committees reflect the full diversity of the City of Edmonton, including members of the city's Indigenous and culturally diverse communities, and artists at all career levels.

Public Art Selection Committees play a vital role in the Public Art commissioning process. Committee members serve as evaluators, providing recommendations for each public artwork commissioned through the City of Edmonton Policy C458B - "Percent for Art to Provide and Encourage Art in Public Areas".

Many submissions are reviewed each year. The EAC attempts to engage a wide spectrum of artists and community in this process. Selection Committees typically review all submitted artist proposals and project descriptions, as well as support material for suitability, relevance, and quality
