Public Art Selection Panel

The deadline for opportunity has passed.

The City of Calgary is moving forward with plans to transition the public art program to an external organization.

This fall we’ll issue a request for proposals (RFP) asking interested organizations to apply.

We’re looking for four Calgarians to sit on a seven-person selection panel that will review applications and recommend the outside organization that is best suited to operate Calgary’s future public art program.

The panel will be made up of seven members:

  • One member of the consultant group Art+Public UnLtd.
  • One City of Calgary administration member.
  • One official from another municipality that operates a public art program through a third-party.
  • Two Calgarians-at-large.
  • Two arts professionals from Calgary’s arts community.

Between mid-November and early December, selection panel members will review submission packages, meet with other panel members to discuss submissions, participate in interviews with proponents and make a final panel recommendation based on ratings criteria outlined in the RFP.

Panel members will be expected to commit up to 50 hours of time to this project. Meetings and interviews will mostly take place online during regular business hours, but some could also be scheduled after hours.

Calgarians who are chosen to participate in the selection panel can expect to be paid approximately between $2,000 and $4,000 depending on the number of RFP submissions received. Only Calgarians-at-large and Calgary arts professionals are eligible to receive compensation for their selection panel duties.
