The City of Austin seeks exceptional emerging and established public artists working in a variety of visual media and artistic approaches for its 2015-17 Pre-Qualified Artist Pool. Selected artists or artist teams from the Pool may be contracted to design and fabricate artwork for eligible Capital Improvement Projects (CIPs) of various scopes, timelines, and budgets throughout the City of Austin. The purpose of the Pre-Qualified Artist Pool is to provide a streamlined application and selection process for artists interested in being commissioned for public art projects through Art in Public Places. Program staff and the Art in Public Places Panel will utilize the Pre-Qualified Pool for selecting artists for future artwork opportunities; however, selecting from the Pool is not an exclusive way for artists to be considered for artwork commission.
