About the event

Your feedback is important.

Please join us for the site specific artist presentations. During each presentation, questions are fielded and community feedback is solicited. Immediately following the presentations, the artist selection committee will enter into deliberations to select the winning concept taking community feedback into consideration. 

Can't join in person? Gain access to virtual attendance here. The video will go live when the event begins at 6pm on June 13.

The new public art commission is to be located at Whittingham & Muirfield Drive. The site is accessible by a mixed-use path, as a drive by on Muirfield Dr., or as a tournament spectator walking the course. 

An eight-member committee selected the finalists from a national pool of 121 artist applicants representing 33 states. Applicants submitted qualifications and photos of completed public artworks, a letter of interest and a community engagement statement as part of the application process. The committee reviews each application against a set of public art criteria.

The finalists include:
