The Art in Public Places Board received a flood of feedback on Los Alamos County’s Open Forum about the Historic Sculptures project and public art in general. But it was far from the first time members have heard ideas from community members.
“Often people will come up to board members or come up to me as a staff member and say, ‘Oh, I’ve got this great idea,’ or ‘I would like an opportunity to put something in front of the board so they can decide if they would like to add it to the public art collection,’” said APPB Staff Liaison Libby Carlsten. “Through the ongoing interface with the public that they realized that something was missing.”
In lieu of reviewing ideas or artwork on a piece-by-piece basis, APPB has spent the past year creating a mechanism for soliciting and evaluating proposals on a regular basis and has issued its first open call for art.
“What we’re trying to do is provide people with an opportunity to suggest ideas for the public art collection,” Carlsten said. “There are lots of great ideas out there, and what we really want to do is provide an opportunity for people to present them to the board.”
