Nominate a Panelist to Review Grants or Public Art Projects

Metro Arts seeks volunteers to serve as grant application reviewers and public art selection panelists. No experience required although some public art projects require specific technical expertise. We provide sufficient orientation so all panelists may serve confidently. Panelists review submitted application materials online, attend required orientation and review meetings, and score each grant application or artist submission. Scores are averaged and are used to help Metro Arts determine funding awards and artist commissions. Email Marysa LaRowe to learn more about serving on a Metro Arts panel.
