Scottsdale Public Art is teaming up with the City of Scottsdale to update and provide a contemporary look to the gateway markers for residents and visitors entering the municipality.
For this project, five artists and artist teams were chosen by a selection panel and were asked to propose designs for new gateway markers, according to a press release.
The new markers will be designed to reflect Scottsdale’s unique character. Consequently, there may be more than one design awarded as Scottsdale’s character can change depending on location.
The public is being asked to give feedback on the five finalists’ designs and rate which one(s) they like the best. Take the survey online now or visit one of the Scottsdale libraries to see the presentations and provide comments.
After the public comment period, the feedback will be considered by an artist selection panel, which will choose the artist(s) or artist team(s). The selected artist(s) or artist team(s) will be announced in February 2020, and fabrication will begin.
Only one survey per person may be filled out. Visit Scottsdalepublicart.org for the survey.
