Focus Group Report
A series of virtual focus group discussions were held with community stakeholders, artists and subject matter experts through the months of May and June, 2020. While the focus group discussion is typically conducted as one group meeting held in person, separate discussions took place for this focus group due to physical distancing requirements during the Covid-19 pandemic. The focus group developed the Project Goal and themes that artists will be asked to address in Public Art submissions to this competition.
For an outline of the results of the Focus Group meeting, please review the Focus Group Report (link below)
