The Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture is looking for people with professional expertise in the arts, architecture, landscape architecture, urban design or a related field who would like to be considered to serve on artist selection panels for the City’s Public Art Program.
Selection panels are essential to the process of hiring artists for City of Phoenix public art projects. For more than three decades, public art has enhanced the look, feel and function of a wide array of public buildings, spaces and infrastructure.  Ranging from works at airports, parks, streetscapes, pedestrian bridges, and overpasses, to improvements at transit facilities, community centers, recycling centers, canal trails and more, these projects have made Phoenix a national leader in building a better, more livable city through public art.
Requirements and Responsibilities
The selection process sometimes requires up to three meetings. Two of those meetings could require an entire day. Panelists also may need to devote time to reviewing and scoring applications online before the first selection panel meeting takes place.

Who’s on the panel?
In addition to professional artists and designers, panels include a representative from the community near the project and a staff member from the city department funding the project. Additional advisors with specialized knowledge about the project and its surroundings may also be on hand to assist the panel.
Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture staff members administer the panels to make sure the process is fair and free of conflicts of interest. The staff does not participate in the panel scoring or voting. All applicants are reviewed anonymously, and panelists are required to use approved project criteria in recommending artists.
