Artists for all public art projects for the Village of Palmetto Bay are selected through a competitive process. Typically, a Request for Qualifications or Proposals is issued describing the project and inviting artists to submit a letter of interest in the project along with documentation of their previous work. Submissions are reviewed by a panel of arts professionals. Finalists are then interviewed by the selection panel which chooses an artist to be recommended for the project. Panel recommendations are subject to approval by the Village of Palmetto Bay Council prior to issuing a contract.
