The original Have You Seen My Public Art? map was created in 2013 by artist Kenny Be as a campaign to encourage submissions for inclusion in the Public Art Archive in the earlier stages of the program’s inception. The second edition of the map will be created by artist Kara Fellows, using newly submitted public art imagery as an opportunity to increase visibility of a diverse range of public art across the United States and US territories. The map will be distributed widely via digital networks and used in occasional collateral material (including postcards and posters). All artwork submissions will be juried for inclusion in the map, and all artworks submitted, whether selected or not, will be added to the Public Art Archive repository to increase access to information about public art throughout the world.
A selection committee of diverse members of the WESTAF staff will jury the submissions and select up to (5) artworks from each state/territory. The selection committee reserves the right to reject any or all entries at any time in the review and selection process. All submissions will be included in the Public Art Archive database and available for public viewing on the public website and the Locate Public Art web application used for finding public art on the go. Artworks chosen for inclusion in the Anniversary Map will be notified by May 15, 2022.
The maps will be distributed widely, for free, via digital networks and used in occasional Public Art Archive and WESTAF collateral material (including postcards and posters). All artwork submissions will be juried for inclusion in the map, and all artworks submitted, whether selected or not, will be added to the Public Art Archive repository to increase access to information about public art throughout the world.
All submissions will be collected through CaFÉ. Artists or organizations must create a free account at https://artist.callforentry.org/register_info.php and upload media to the account portfolio before completing an application. Each artist or organization can submit up to 20 separate applications. Applications will not be accepted after 11:59 p.m. MDT, April 30, 2022.
IMPORTANT: If you have previously submitted public artworks to the Public Art Archive that you would like to submit for consideration to the anniversary map, be sure to provide the URL of the artwork on the Public Art Archive in your application. To find the URL:
- Navigate to the PAA database and search by artist name.
- If your artwork is included in PAA, click on the corresponding search results.
- The URL for the artwork record will be listed in the navigation bar.
For organizations submitting on behalf of an artist or studio, fill out the details and complete the application for each individual project.
This project is open to all artists and organizations that are the creators, commissioners, and/or owners of public artworks that have been created within the last ten years (2012-2022). Artworks are considered ‘public art’ if they are in a place accessible or visible to the public without an entrance fee. If eligibility is in question, the Public Art Archive staff will make the final determination.
