Art selection process
The Public Art Endowment is governed by its trustees, who make all final decisions regarding art and project selections. Trustees are supported in their work by the Art Selection Committee, as well as the Steering Committee.

The Art Selection Committee sought works that are of high aesthetic caliber, culturally relevant to our community, build awareness around the value of public art as a community asset and financially feasible at this time.

The Art Selection Committee is made up of Nancy Doll (Committee Chair); Maria Luisa de Herrera, a public art consultant in Los Angeles; Wendy Feuer, assistant commissioner of design and art in the Division of Planning and Sustainability at the NYC Department of Transportation; Pallas Lombardi, program manager of the Art-in-Transit Program with the Charlotte Area Transit System; Cheryl Stewart, a public art consultant in Greensboro; and Laura Way, executive director of Green Hill Center for North Carolina Art in Greensboro.

Each year the committee recommends three works for consideration. This year, the site on which one of these pieces will be installed is on Green Valley Road, at the intersection of the Proximity Hotel,” where our James Surls piece “Standing Vase With Five Flowers” stood previously. Trustees are then charged with making the final selection through votes that will be cast at a casual Wine & Cheese Drop-In from 5-7 p.m. on Thursday, May 2, at the home of Sallie McMillion, 209 Irving Place. Trustees, kindly RSVP to Diane Marks at 379-9100, ext. 122, or email DMarks@cfgg.org.

During the initial phase of the Endowment, installations will be long-term but temporary. Once the Endowment reaches $2 million in pledged funds, trustees will reconsider how works are brought to Greensboro, perhaps as commissioned and/or purchased pieces for permanent installation.
