Volunteer for Public Art

As Allen continues to grow, the Public Art Committee is tasked with identifying future art projects that align with the Public Art Master Plan. The committee typically meets monthly on the third Tuesday of the month.

Joining the Public Art Committee
City of Allen boards, commissions and committees advise the City Council on a variety of issues. Appointments are made by the City Council in September. All qualified voters in the City of Allen are eligible to apply for positions with any of the nine council-appointed boards, including the Public Art Committee. Learn more.

Joining an Artist Selection Panel
For each project identified by the Public Art Committee, a subcommittee is formed to recommend the selection of an artist or artwork.
Depending on the type of selection process employed, the Artist Selection Panel is responsible for:

  • Reviewing artist qualifications and proposals, and interviewing artists.
  • Reviewing community feedback on proposals (if applicable).
  • Making final recommendations to the Public Art Committee to bring before the City Council.
The Artist Selection Panel will convene for 3-5 meetings facilitated by Public Art Program staff. Meetings typically last around two hours. If you are interested in joining an Artist Selection Panel, contact Jennifer Robinson at 214.509.4703 or jrobinson@cityofallen.org.
