Panelists

Every year, the Arts Commission looks for prospective panelists to serve on review panels for our Grants and Civic Art programs. Nominations are accepted on a rolling basis, with the list of panelists updated on a quarterly basis. Honorariums are provided for panelists who participate in a grant review panel or artist selection committee.

Panelists review, assess, and score grant applications and artist proposals. Panelists’ assessments and scores become the basis for applicant rankings and recommendations to the Arts Commission. Panelists do not recommend funding amounts or set the cut-off score below which applicants are not funded.

Nominate a Panelist


Individuals can nominate up to four panelists for one or more programs by providing their information in the application form. If you are using the form to nominate individuals other than yourself, you want to nominate other individuals at a later date or you would like to nominate more than four individuals at a time, you may use the same link to continue nominations.
