The purpose of the Pre-Qualified Artist Pool is to provide a streamlined application and selection process for artists and artist teams interested in being commissioned for public art projects through the City of Austin Art in Public Places Program. Program staff and the Art in Public Places Panel will utilize the Pre-Qualified Pool, in whole or in part, for commission opportunities based on project timeline, scope, previously identified project outcomes, and/or a highly specialized field of opportunity. The list of artists and artist teams in the Pool will also be made available to private developers and other public art commissioning entities for their use. All artists and artist teams in the Pool remain eligible for contract opportunities for a minimum of a two-year period.
