Evaluation of Community Arts applications are based on four criteria, with a 1-4-7-10 ranking system. Each of the criteria are weighted (as indicated below) to combine for a total score of 100%.
Applications are evaluated by a rotating panel of six Bay Area artists representing multiple disciplines, geographic areas, aesthetic styles, and backgrounds. Panelists are respected experts and mentors in the Bay Area arts community; each panelist serves a three-year term.
