PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Portland’s public art committee says four artists have been selected as finalists to develop a public art concept for one of the city’s most visible public spaces.

Two of the artists are from New York, one is from Colorado and one is from California. The winner will collaborate with a design team to create a public art idea for Congress Square.

Congress Square is the location of a public park that was saved by a 2014 referendum vote. The city had wanted to sell most of the half-acre park to a hotel owner before voters took action to protect it.

The four finalists will speak at a public forum at Portland Museum of Art on Aug. 8. The event will be free and open to the public.
