MIDDLETOWN, Calif. — The Middletown Rancheria, Callayomi Water District, and the Middletown Art Center are inviting Middletown area residents and participants of the Middletown Area Town Hall, or MATH, to join the jury for the Water Basket Project design selection.

They are seeking two representatives from MATH attendees and two2 representatives from the Middletown area public.

In the event that there are more qualified candidates than available slots, a blind selection will take place. Additionally, up to two additional community seats may be added if the number of interested participants exceeds 20.

The jury will be tasked with selecting two to four designs for each tank to move to the public input stage. Approximately 20 designs have been submitted.

To be considered for the jury process, please submit a brief statement explaining why you believe you would be a good fit for this task.

The jurying process will take place in mid-March, on a date and time convenient for all seated jurors at the Middletown Art Center. The exact date and time are to be determined but will likely be in the late afternoon or evening.

Selected designs for each tank will be available for public viewing and input in April both prior to and after the MATH meeting, and for two weeks at the Callayomi Water District Office, the Tribal Office, and the Middletown Art Center. Exact dates will be announced.

This call for jurors aims to find a design that will resonate with the community within the context of the project's goals. For more information on the project and design criteria, please visit https://middletownartcenter.org/water-basket.html.
