I'm Oh for like every year so far!
Thank you very much for your recent submission to the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities Art Bank Collection through the DC Creates! Public Art Program. Our two panel Selection Committee, consisting of eight arts professionals and artists, reviewed over 300 applications for this FY15 acquisition cycle. Unfortunately, I regret to inform you that your submission was not selected to continue into the second in person review panel of artwork to be purchased. The exceptional caliber and diversity of artwork submitted made this year’s selection process especially competitive.
Although your application was not selected this year, the Commission values your individual contribution to the D.C. arts community and strongly encourages you to reapply to our future Art Bank calls for work, public art opportunities, and grant programs we offer. Should you have any questions about the Selection Committee process, please don’t hesitate to contact me via email. We look forward to seeing your application at the next available opportunity.
