The honorariums offered are $6,500 for each of the two new pieces of public art.
Applications are scored blindly by the ECAC based on the following criteria: artistic excellence, technical competence, narrative support, appropriate relationship to the function of the site, and long-term feasibility. City staff, to ensure installation feasibility, will evaluate the top three pieces scored. The ECAC will make a final determination based on the scores and recommendations by staff. Winners of the honorariums will be announced in late spring. After selection, production of the new works is expected to begin in early summer and be completed and installed in time for the annual Art Harvest event in late October.

The work will be officially unveiled at the annual Art Harvest event at the end of October.
