How We Help Artists
Prepare to be more productive as a public artist than you've ever been. With our tools you will spend less time responding to RFQs and more time doing your art!
1. We keep all of your images in one place
Our system allows artists to upload high resolution images and attach project details to each image. Your image library is extremely flexible, allowing you to tailor an application with the most appropriate images in just a few clicks. We also take care of all the image resizing for your applications!
2. We keep all of your documents in one place
Our system is equipped to handle the supporting documentation for all of your applications: artist statements, bios, letters of interest, references and your resume or CV. Your documents are stored in our system and you can edit each before attaching them to an application, so you can be sure you're submitting the most up-to-date and relevant information for a particular call. Our ResumeBuilder is particularly useful for keeping track of all of your shows, commissions and accolades...showing only what's necessary for any RFQ.
3. Apply for calls hosted on our site...or...Print your applications for mailing
Your information and images are yours. You should be able to get to them when you want, how you want. That's why we'll let you tailor a collection of images and documents any way you want, no matter what you plan to do with it.
4. We're always looking for public art calls just for you!
We're only interested in public art opportunities. We don't list calls for festivals, shows or residencies. By doing this, you get the calls that you're interested in, sent directly to your mailbox. No more trolling through long lists of stuff that doesn't apply to you!
How We Help Administrators
1. We can get your complete RFQ online in just minutes
Our system is formatted so that you can select what information you want to include in your RFQ with just a few clicks. We ask you the questions that you'd likely get from applying artists, before your call is made public. Time-consuming and confusing revisions to your call are a thing of the past!
2. Managing and reviewing applications is quick, easy, and effective
After your RFQ is made public, you can start reviewing submitted applications as soon as they come in. Our review platform allows each member of a selection panel to manage their personal list of selected and rejected artists. Everyone's prepared when it comes time to make a decision! Panel members can print out a list of their selected artists to take with them to selection panel meetings.
3. We have a pool of capable and dedicated artists ready to apply.
Since we only list calls for public art, only artists who are interested in public art have accounts on our site. We can minimize the applications by artists with no experience, or who don't understand the magnitude of undertaking a public art project.
4. You can manage your organization's public art roster
You, as an administrator, are capable of maintaining a private roster of pre-qualified artists. If an artist applies to one of your open calls, but doesn't make the cut for that particular project, you can still keep track of that artist's portfolio via the Roster function. You can also open an invitational call for just those artists you specify.
