Hamilton Arts Awards Being Revamped

Nominations will be simpler for the public to submit to the City. Instead of the “current requirements for extensive information about the nominee’s career”, the new process will ask the nominator “to confirm basic eligibility criteria and provide reasons why they think the artist should be recognized”.

“Given its size and dramatic lighting, the proposed work will be impactful both day and night and can easily become a local landmark. The proposed seating adds an interactive component not present in some other proposals”, the jury report states.
