Aug 1st, 2019 – Made the short list for Hamilton’s first ever Utility Box art project!
According to the City’s Public Art Department, “a volunteer citizen jury has reviewed 137 artists’ submissions and shortlisted 38 based on their response to the project goal and themes, appropriateness for Downtown Hamilton, artistic excellence, technical feasibility and ability to deter graffiti.”
The second round of the selection process is public feedback. As of July 26st, 2019, 1508 people have provided feedback on the 38 artists. At the moment, my total score is 135 points which places me at 28 out of 38. The jury will accept 32 or fewer artists.
I would like to thank everyone who has voted for me. The public consultation ends Aug 5th, 2019, so there is still time to vote.
