Extended Deadline for AoAB Jury and BPAAC Volunteers
The Arts & Culture Department is still seeking volunteers for two advisory bodies: the Art on the Atlanta BeltLine jury for the 2020-2021 temporary exhibition and the BeltLine Public Art Advisory Council (BPAAC).
The jury panel is tasked with selecting projects each year for the temporary exhibition that bring richness and diversity to the Atlanta arts scene. Selected from a pool of qualified applicants, jurors will serve three full days in May. They will collectively evaluate every complete artistic proposal. Jurors are compensated for their time.
The BPAAC meets quarterly to review ABI’s public art projects and programs, including selected artists for the annual Art on the Atlanta BeltLine exhibition, external exhibition proposals, and creative partnerships. The council also provides advice and recommendations to ABI’s Arts & Culture Department.
Applicants are selected based on arts and culture experience and background and are required to live in a neighborhood adjacent to the Atlanta BeltLine. Selected participants serve a two-year term.
Interested jury and BPAAC applicants now have until April 15, 2020 to submit a cover letter and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
