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 is as a resource for art selection committees to identify artists most suitable for their community and specific project needs.
The roster provides a pool of highly qualified artists and increases the efficiency of the selection process.
The Oregon Art in Public Places Roster accepts applicants through CaFE during open call periods. The roster is refreshed every three years. The next open call, for the 2020-2022 roster, will occur in the fall of 2019. To receive notification of the call, please subscribe to the Oregon Arts Commission eNews and check the box for the category Percent for Art.
