The Oregon Arts Commission and the Regional Arts & Culture Council manage the Percent for Art programs of the state of Oregon, Multnomah County, and City of Portland. Recognizing an opportunity to acknowledge and promote artistic work, the Arts Commission and RACC have created the Oregon Art in Public Places Roster.
Percent for art projects in Portland, Multnomah County and Oregon bring together artists, community members, agency employees and project architects to form selection committees. These groups determine the types and locations for artwork in public locations and select artists for commissions. The roster will be used as a resource for art selection committees to identify artists most suitable for their community and specific project needs.
The roster will provide a pool of highly qualified artists and increases the efficiency of the selection process.
The Oregon Art in Public Places Roster is currently open to applicants through CaFE. The deadline is July 11, 2016.
