How To Display Art in Pine Lake


Where are the public art exhibits displayed?

Pine Lake’s public art exhibits can be seen on the Art Wall in front of the Public Works building on Clubhouse Drive near the intersection of Forrest Road, as well as various permanent and temporary locations around the city.

Who may apply to exhibit artwork?

Individual exhibits: Usually individual exhibits will feature Pine Lake artists. (Although strong preference will be given to Pine Lake artists, some special exhibits by artists outside of Pine Lake may be approved.)

Group exhibits: Any group may apply, but the organizer of the project (who will fill out the application) must be from Pine Lake. (Preference will be given to group projects that encourage community involvement.)

How many exhibits will be produced each year?

At the Art Wall, MAP anticipates hosting 1 or 2 long term exhibits on the Art Wall each year, with the potential for an additional 1 or 2 short-term or pop-up exhibits.

● Long-term: 3-12 months
● Short-term: 1-3 months
● Pop-up: 1 day - 1 week

Individual Public Art installations throughout the City do not follow a regular schedule.

Who chooses what gets to be on display?

The MAP’s appointed Curator reviews information regarding each new proposal for public art to determine if an Artist Selection Panel is needed and nominates individuals for that panel to MAP for approval. The Curator or Artist Selection Panel reviews art proposals and submits recommendations for selection or rejection to the MAP, which considers final artist selection and provides recommendations to Pine Lake City Council for final approval.  

What are the criteria for choosing art?

The following criteria will be used to identify suitable public art for display: quality and Integrity of work: high artistic standards are maintained for artworks displayed in the City.
● Artworks shall be compatible with the character of the community and shall support a vision for the City's mission and values.
