This week, the City of San Antonio announced an open call for its 2022 list of artists and support-service providers who are pre-qualified to work on public art projects.

The Department of Arts & Culture is looking for applicants from both within and outside San Antonio to develop public art projects across the city, according to the announcement. The application period runs through November 16.

“Public Art reflects who we are, inspires and creates conversation, and contributes to the connectivity, accessibility, and growth of San Antonio,” department's Interim Executive Director Krystal Jones said in a statement. “Those on our pre-qualified list have the unique opportunity to shape San Antonio and how it is viewed by residents and visitors for years to come.”

Individuals artists and arts organizations are both eligible to apply, as are individuals and businesses that provide support services ranging from curation and project management to art shipping and web design.

The final results will be announced in February 2022 after approval by city council. All those on the pre-qualified list will remain eligible for contract opportunities over a three year period.

Additional details are available at the Department of Arts & Culture's website.
