Redmond Lights Art Selection Process

The art for Redmond Lights 2022 was selected through two artist calls. One call opened to the public on August 12 and closed on September 23. The second was specifically tailored for participants of the 2022 Public Art Intensive Eastside, a free two-day basic training for visual artists who wish to develop their work for the public realm. 31 applicants from both calls were reviewed by a selection panel that included public arts professionals, Redmond business owners, and a Redmond Arts and Culture Commissioner. The 12 recommendations from this panel were sent to the Redmond Arts and Culture Commission for approval on October 13.
