Program Description: The City of Hillsboro is seeking submissions of two-dimensional works of art to become part of Hillsboro’s Public Art Collection. Limited edition archival reproductions of the original will then be presented as gifts to dignitaries visiting Hillsboro and during the official City trips throughout the world. Designating artwork as an official gift emphasizes Hillsboro’s pride in its creative community.
Finalists will be selected for an exhibition in the City of Hillsboro Civic Center auditorium where the City Council meets. The work for purchase will be selected from the finalists on view. (Note: If the work is selected as a finalist, it must be delivered ready to hang. The purchase price does not have to include the frame.)
