The Clark County Public Art Program assigned a budget for ten local artists to design site-specific public art in center street medians throughout Clark County. Since said artist is expected to oversee fabrication, that also means they are more then design lead. They are expected to be contractors. As the release says: "Artist teams are eligible to apply, including teams of artists from multiple disciplines; however, all artists must be local and able to prove they are residents of Clark County. An artist team must be led by a single artist, under whom the other team members will work as subcontractors."
