Scope of Work
Public Art Boot Camp is open to artists living in Washington or Oregon state who have not received a temporary or permanent public art commission over $5,000 (an artwork that is created at the request of an entity: public agency, corporation, or individual and that is/was displayed in a public location). Applicants should have an interest in exploring the presentation of their work in public settings and an interest in community-building or enhancing the built environment.

Applicants should also be committed to learning how to maintain artistic creativity and vision while attending to the demands of the public process. Priority will be given to emerging artists, artists from historically under-represented communities and communities of color.

Specific instructions: bid closing, mandatory meeting, bonding, insurance…
We strongly encourage you to attend the workshop, especially if you are a first-time applicant.
