Presenter: Kate Ali, Public Art Manager, City of Eugene Cultural Services Division

As a professional artist trying to break into the field of art in public places, applying to public art projects can feel intimidating and overwhelming. This workshop will demystify the application process through the lens of a percent for art project from start to finish. We will look at how percent for art projects are developed, how to gain the necessary experience to be considered for a public art project, project application tips, as well as project proposal dos and don’ts.
