Why was my application rejected?
There are many reasons why an application may be rejected. Common reasons are your exhibit may be too similar to upcoming exhibits. (i.e. it is dealing with the same subject matter), or you may not have enough pieces to exhibit. 

If I’ve been invited to display my work in City Hall, why does each piece have to be juried?
According to the Policies and Procedures which were approved by the Board of Mayor and Aldermen, each piece has to be reviewed by the City Hall Art Jury before it can be hung. 

Why were pieces in my exhibit rejected?
There are many reasons why a piece may be rejected. Two common reasons are that the pieces were not presented properly (i.e. no frames or dirty frames) or the Jury felt the content was inappropriate for City Hall.
