Artist Roster

The Artist Roster is a standing list of pre-qualified artists who work in public art. The roster is used as an optional tool through which a the community review panel for a 1 percent for art public art project with a budget of under $50,000 can select three artists to present their work. The panel then completed the review process to chose the finalist.

Budget for Artwork: $50,000 and below

Application Deadline: Rolling

Project Description: The Artist Roster for Public Art

The Arts Foundation for Tucson and Southern Arizona invites artists to apply to be a part of the Arts Foundation for Tucson and Southern Arizona’s Artist Roster for Public Art.

What It Is: The Artist Roster is a standing list of pre-qualified artists that work in public art. It is an optional artist selection process for 1 percent for art public art projects with budgets that do not exceed $50,000. The Roster has a rolling application process, allowing artists to join the apply to be added to the roster on an ongoing basis. 

When It Is Used: The Artist Roster is only an option for small budget Public Art projects ($50,000 or less). It is an alternative artist selection process used to expedite low-budget projects, and not all projects under $50,000 utilize the list. The City or County has the discretion of using the roster provided it meets the budget criteria.

How It Is Used: The Artist Roster will be reviewed by a project specific, seven-member panel comprised of community members, city/county employees, artists, and arts professionals. The panel for each project for which the roster is being used selects three finalists from the roster for interviews and presentations, after which an artist is selected.

How to Apply: Please click here for the link that will take you to the online application portal: Public Art Roster Application.

You will be asked to provide up to 10 images of recent work, a CV (resume), and an Artist Bio. Applications are online through the submittable portal only. Applications received via email or mail will not be accepted. Approval for the Artist Roster is done by the AFTSA’s Public Art and Community Design (PACD) Committee on the second Wednesday of every month. The artist will be notified after their application has been reviewed as to whether they have been accepted to the roster.

Artists approved for addition to the Artist Roster will be on the roster for a term of two years. Four months prior to their two-year term limit, they will be contacted via email to fill out a short form confirming their desire to either remain on the Roster – with the option to update their portfolio – or to remove themselves from the Roster.
