Hall County Government is issuing its second open call for artists to participate in the Hall County Government Center Public Art Program.
“County employees, visitors and citizens have been very complimentary of the works that have been on display since the beginning of 2017, and we are looking forward to highlighting new artists and new artwork during the second half of the year,” said Hall County Administrator Randy Knighton.
Knighton said the County is looking for artists who are interested in displaying their two-dimensional works of art for a period of approximately six months at the Browns Bridge Road campus.
Once again, up to 25 pieces of art that reflect Hall County’s tagline, “We have it all in Hall,” will be placed on the second, third and fourth floor of the building for the enjoyment of the public.
“I would like to thank the Board of Commissioners for their continued support of local art and this program,” Knighton said. “It is an honor to participate in making this incredible art available to the citizens at large.”
The deadline for submissions is May 17. Artwork is expected to be installed by July 1, and artists will be invited to be recognized during one of the Hall County Board of Commissioners’ regularly scheduled voting meetings.
For more information, including the necessary paperwork to be filled out by artists, please visit www.hallcounty.org.
