Applying to Atlanta's Public Art Registry
Atlanta’s Public Art Program Artist Registry
The City of Atlanta’s Office of Cultural Affairs Public Art Program (OCA/PAP) invites artists to submit qualifications for Atlanta’s Public Art Registry. The artist registry serves as the preferred vendor list for soliciting artists for major and minor public art commissions and direct purchases of artworks for the City of Atlanta. Budgets for each project will vary. Historically budgets have ranged from $5,000 to $250,000.
Artists remain in the registry for a minimum of two years. Placement in the registry does not guarantee a commission nor does it excludes artists from submitting for other public art projects offered by the City of Atlanta. Artists will be notified by mail if they are selected for the Public Art Registry.
Artists in the registry will be solicited for site-specific commissions, artist architect collaborations, design services and artists/community collaborations.
Applications accepted from November 1st, 2013 through January 03, 2014. Applications will not be accepted at any other time during the year.
