A design featuring water, wind and Earth, or some type of mosaic will likely be the artwork chosen for the east wall of the Judicial/Police/Jail Complex.

A committee made up of stakeholders who have an interest in the building and members of the Art in Public Places Board as well as county staff, met in a two-hour meeting Tuesday.

During the meeting they examined and discussed the proposals that artists submitted to the county and talked about what type of artwork they’d like to see on the wall.

“The board wanted to get input from the stakeholders. It’s your building. The art will be placed on the east wall, facing the pond,” APP Chair John Hofmann said.

“Max (Baker) said we could consider spending lots of money because of its location, so we’re looking at $100,000 plus for the art,” APP Board Liaison Stephani Johnson said.

The committee, composed of Hofmann, Board Member Joanna Gillespie, Magistrate Court Judge Pat Casados, Police Lieutenant Chuck Ney, Captain Randy Foster, JPJ Project Manager Victor Martinez, Court Administrator Barbara Marcille, a representative from the detention center and Capital Projects and Facilities Manager Anne Laurent pored over approximately 22 proposals. Johnson was also at the meeting, but refrained from voting on the proposals.
