Artists are encouraged to participate in the AIPP program by applying for and receiving site-specific commissions. In addition, artists may serve on selection committees or the AIPP committee as vacancies occur.
Typically, the Arts Commission selects artists for commissions by issuing an open call to artists in the form of Requests for Qualifications or Requests for Proposals. Occasionally, geographic limits may be set by the AIPP committee based on the project budget or concept. All eligible responses are then reviewed in accordance with City procurement policies and the AIPP guidelines.
