We're just passing this information along. Apparently the city of Dallas has a list of whom they'll commission for public art in Dallas. And apparently this list is currently accepting applicants, even those without any public art experience. And apparently these applications will no longer be accepted after October 30. And apparently they won't reopen the list again for two years.
And in keeping with the city's obsession with the number 50, this list will be 50 artists long, who will be considered for public art commissions of $50,000 or less, for places that sound like the undesirables on the Monopoly board: "parks, street right-of-way, water utilities locations, and other public locations in 2015-16."
