Welcome to Connecticut Artist Registry

Note regarding the Portrait of State Official Opportunity. You do not need to register into the Artist Registry. The only requirement is to select "Portrait of a State Official" from the drop-down menu, then complete the form and upload the required materials (resume, images, image contact sheet). If you experience problems prior to the deadline you may email your materials to and include "Portrait of a State Official" in the subject line. 

The Connecticut Artist Registry online portal serves as the registration site for artists interested in being considered for public art opportunities through COA's Art in Public Spaces program and for additional opportunties as they become available.  

IMPORTANT NOTE for artists submitting in response to Art in Public Spaces opportunities.  The Art in Public Spaces Registry allows artists to submit ONE registration form and be considered for multiple projects.  The program operates using a registry format in which there is NO APPLICATION (unless otherwise specified).  Public art committees review portfolios and shortlist a group who will be invited to submit site-specific proposals.  For a listing of current public art RFQ's.     

  • COA accepts submissions to the Art in Public Spaces Registry on an ongoing basis.  
  • Each Art in Public Spaces project posts its own specific registration deadline.   
  • Submit your portfolio through the online portal and follow the instructions.
  • COA will ONLY contact artists who have been shortlisted for further consideration and proposal development.
