The Public Art Committee was established for the purposes of reviewing and approving proposals for the provision of public art or public works of art; and advising the City Commission regarding the acquisition, placement and display of works of art. The Committee serves as a liaison between the City and persons or organizations who wish to donate art to the citizens of this community. The board consists of 6 members appointed by the city commission, plus a STAR (Student Taking Active Roles in Government) program member who have demonstrated an interest in public art and who possess the skills necessary to make recommendations relating to all matters related to public art. Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of February, May, August, and November at 1:00 P.M. Special meetings of the Board may be called as needed. The board is assisted and supported by the Planning Department.
