*these were required this year as a part of our NEA Project Grant
Community Fit - popularity of project, will the Moab community enjoy the work, can it be in a space where the majority of the community and tourists will be able to view the work
Unique Project - filling a gap in the community public art collection
Project Lifespan - how long will it last with minimal upkeep
Able to Accommodate - Is it doable for Moab Arts to facilitate the project (scope locations, prepare contracts, facilitate street closure if necessary, installation preparation)
Doable in Timeframe - is the project at a scale that the artist will be able to complete in the given timeframe, will materials be available in time, etc.
Skills and Experience of the Artist - will the public art project be a quality piece to add to the collection in Moab
