Artwork Selection Process
The artwork selection process may begin as soon as the budget has been signed by the Governor and the agency receives authorization for Legislatively-appropriated funds for the new building. This will ensure that the selected artist(s) and members of the design team, such as the architect, have enough time to collaborate. The process begins with the agency’s submission of the project’s Construction Appropriation Notification Form to the ASB Administrator and to the Florida Arts Council via the Division.
The selection process shall reflect the national standards and best practices of the public art field. For example:
- Committees shall be comprised of state agency staff, professional designers, and local community stakeholders.
- Meetings shall be open to the public.
- Projects shall be widely advertised to attract the best artists.
- The first artist review shall be held as a "blind review" to ensure fairness.
