Selection Criteria

The open application period for ARTisPHL has closed.

Artists for Group 2 will be chosen by a Review Panel including artists, art professionals, and other stakeholders who know the Philadelphia art community well.  No one factor determined the selection of an idea. The following evaluation criteria will guide the Review Panel choosing ideas to move forward:

  • Does this idea creatively approach the idea of engagement?
  • Does this idea represent a distinctive point of view?
  • Is this idea using an unusual or underrepresented art form?
  • How is this applicant defining and relating to a concept of community?
  • Does this idea think about how to involve members of the community?
  • Does this idea consider the differences between an audience for artwork and artwork for a community?
  • Does this idea support new, generative artwork rather than a continuation of an existing project? In progress work will be considered only if it is a clear expansion or reinterpretation of the project.  Curation of the work of others is discouraged for this opportunity
