This page has been archived as of October 29, 2021, the day LexSeeHer announced Meredith Bergmann as the winner of our Call to Artists challenge.
The page helps provide context for our open process in finding an artist to lead the design for Lexington's new monument. We appreciate the excellence of the artists who submitted qualifications and proposals. There are many talented artists ready to help build contemporary monuments and we encourage people to use an open call if they are considering a project for their community.
---- Sincerely, the LexSeeHer Steering Committee

Answers to questions related to the Call for Artists:
May 23: If I mail my application, must I also submit an online form?
If you mail an application, you do not need to submit an online form. It is helpful to email us at email@example.com so we know that you have mailed an applicaiton. We know that mail is still impacted for some people, and want to keep an eye out for any mailed work.
May 23: If I mail images, is a CD preferred? or a memory card?
If you mail images, the best format would be an SD card (including SDHC or SDXC ).
If you are not able to use an SD card, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements so that we can coordinate a format in which we will be prepared to access your images.
