New Painting (Premium Position)
New Painting (Period of Significance)

How do you know you’re in a premium position to:

agitate, sell your car, interfere with an election,
compromise, come out, perform, join, look for a new job,
show an artwork, make a lane change, strike, call a friend
for advice, get pregnant, speak, write, marry, get a dog,
blow the whistle, borrow money, move, take the lead,
respond, submit, commit, abort, have surgery, say no,
say yes, cut to the chase, share, comment, cover it up,
separate, sign, direct, invest, divest, adopt, tell it like it
is, start a movement, leave the country, step down, give
advice, get high, give it a rest

Two other considerations affect evaluation of significance:
association and period of significance. Association refers
to the direct connection between the ARTWORK and the time
of significance for which it is nominated. For an ARTWORK
to be significant under historic events (Criterion A), the
physical structure must have been there to "witness" the
event or series of events; they must have actually
occurred. For an ARTWORK to be significant for an
association with an ARTIST (Criterion B), the ARTIST should
have lived, worked, or been on the premises during the
period in which the ARTIST accomplished the activities for
which the ARTIST is considered significant. Period of
refers to the span of time during which
significant events and activities occurred. Events and
associations with ARTISTS are finite; most ARTWORKS have a
clearly definable period of significance.

An ARTWORK is evaluated for its integrity: the authenticity
of physical characteristics from which ARTWORKS obtain
their significance. When ARTWORKS retain historic material
and form, they are able to convey their association with
events, people, and designs from the past.

All ARTISTS change over time. Changes do not necessarily
mean that an ARTIST is not eligible; but, if they have
radical changes, they may no longer retain enough historic
fabric, and may not be eligible for the _____________.
Historic integrity is the composite of seven qualities:
location, design, setting, materials, workmanship, feeling
and association.

Contributing ARTWORKS are those ARTWORKS identified as
“Contributing” in the Historic Resources survey for the
___________. Generally, “Contributing” ARTWORKS will have
been built within the historic Period of Significance of
the ARTIST, and will retain elements that identify it as
belonging to that period. The historic period of
significance of the ARTIST is usually the time period in
which the majority of construction in the area occurred.
In some instances, ARTWORKS that are compatible with the
ARTWORKS of that period or that are historic in their own
right, but were built outside of the Period of
Significance, will also be “Contributing”.

Non-contributing ARTWORKS are those ARTWORKS identified as
not retaining their historic character as a result of un-
reversible alterations, or as having been built outside of
the Period of Significance or because they are vacant lots.
