Projects fall into three categories according to the size of the project's art allocation. These categories determine the number of committee members required and the methods of solicitation and selection of artists. If the committee determines that it needs additional technical expertise, it may add up to three non-voting committee members to the Local Art Selection Committee.

Methods of Solicitation and Selection:
Based on consultation with the Visual Arts Representative(s), the committee recommends artists to be contacted by the Designated Program Administrator to submit slides for initial review. The committee is authorized to solicit more artists by using the Division's public art mailing list, by using any other artist mailing list or by advertising the project.

I. Direct Selection ($1,000-$10,000)
Committee:
Florida Arts Council Representative (non-voting)
Designated Program Administrator (non-voting)
User Agency Representative (voting)
Occupant Representative (voting)
Visual Arts Representative (voting)

The committee may commission work specifically for the project or they may decide to purchase existing works of art or they may do both.

II. Invitational ($10,001-$30,000)
Committee:
Florida Arts Council Representative (non-voting)
Designated Program Administrator (non-voting)
User Agency Representative (voting)
Occupant Representative (voting)
Architect (voting)
2 Visual Arts Representatives (voting)
Project Director (non-voting)

After review of the initial entries, the committee may decide to purchase existing works of art or they may select finalists who will be requested to make presentations or site-specific proposals or they may do both. Once the committee decides whether presentations or site-specific proposals are to be requested, that decision applies to all finalists for the project.

III. Open Competition ($30,001-$100,000)
Committee:
Florida Arts Council Representative (non-voting)
Designated Program Administrator (non-voting)
User Agency Representative (voting)
Occupant Representative (voting)
Architect (voting)
2 Visual Arts Representatives (voting)
Project Director (non-voting)

After review of the initial entries, the committee selects at least three artists who will be requested to make presentations or site-specific proposals. Once the committee decides whether presentations or site-specific proposals are to be requested, that decision applies to all finalists for the project.

*If a committee has found one artist for whom they feel overwhelmingly strong, it is allowed to choose that artist as the singular finalist.
