Where:  Phoenix Art Museum, Community Room

You got the call! You’re a finalist! Now you need to pull together a proposal and present it to a selection panel (GULP!!!) Suddenly your mind is racing…”Where to begin? What will they want? How do I do this???”

In this workshop we’ll discuss what key factors make a presentation sing and what makes a proposal fall flat. Tempe’s coLab Studio and staff from the Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture’s Public Art Program will show examples of proposals and present tools to help manage the interview and proposal process.

For more information or to register email agallego@azarts.gov or call 602.771.6530.

About the Series
If you wonder what it takes to make the leap from small-scale studio art to large scale public art, this three-part series of workshops will provide some answers. The series will break down the process of turning ideas into public works, from presentations and proposals through collaborations and the development of designs. Each workshop will feature a presentation by a local artist, a question and answer session with Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture (POAC) staff, and a brief workshop for participants. The workshops are free and open to the public courtesy of Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture, Arizona Commission on the Arts and the Phoenix Art Museum.

Workshop 3:  The Design Process on May 25th, check back soon for details!
