We’re moving on the next steps in our public art call, and thanks for following along.
Next week, Connective Corridor public art jurors will assemble in Syracuse to conduct interviews with the 16 semi-finalists they previously selected from a field of 276 applicants. Based on the RFQ, along with public outreach sessions, and terrific feedback from Syracuse New Times readers, the jury will be working off a scorecard to help them identify the best finalists.
In-depth video conference interviews will help make an assessment of final artists who will be invited to Syracuse to work with the community to develop final site-specific proposals. It’s been designed to be a creative collaborative process, and other communities are beginning to reach out to Syracuse to learn from it.
It’s also been a wonderful community conversation and we greatly appreciate your insight and input.
Here’s a copy of the scorecard. Tell us what other questions you’d like to see the jury ask the semi-finalists, and then check back in to learn which artists have been recommended as finalists.
