Frequently asked questions regarding ELEVATE proposals
A. Should I include a budget?
A detailed budget is not necessary however we do need to know what materials/technology you intend to use and the general range of your projected costs.
B. If project file will not fit into one email may I email them in two separate emails?
Yes, we are aware and sensitive to artists' time constraints. If you choose to do so please label the emails as such ie. 1of2 and 2of2
You may also mail or hand deliver your proposals to:
Public Art Program Manager
233 Peachtree Street
Suite 1700 – Harris Tower
Atlanta, Georgia 30303
C. What if I am not familiar with the area and do not have a specific location?
It is not necessary to site a specific property for your work. A development committee will work alongside all finalists to procure the ultimate location for each work. Helpful information would include stating your vision clearly ie. do you see your work outside, inside, in a store front, hanging from a tree etc.
