What is the deadline for submissions?
The deadline has passed.
Where will the submissions be publicly displayed? A select number of submissions that meet all requirements will be displayed online at PomonaPeoplePower.com as part of the Hall of Gratitude. A limited selection will also be included in the permanent public artwork at the Pomona Gold Line Station.
How will the selection be made for those who will be included in the permanent public artwork at the Pomona Station?
The artist and the Foothill Gold Line Authority will collaboratively make the final selection based on many factors including but not limited to: A compelling story, diversity, quality and composition of the photo, ability to receive appropriate authorizations and importance of the local hero to the community. No person currently serving in elected office will be considered.
When will the community be notified of which local heroes are selected for inclusion in the permanent public artwork at the Foothill Gold Line Pomona Station? The Authority will make a public announcement by mid-2023. Each selected participant will be notified before that.
Will there be a public ceremony to dedicate the artwork? Yes, all those who submitted local heroes for consideration will be invited to the public dedication of the artwork at the Foothill Gold Line Pomona Station, currently anticipated to be in 2025.
