Arts in Public Places Board ready to tackle new projects

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

  Like most county entities, 2008 proved to be a busy year for the Arts in Public Places Board. They were involved in several projects and are going into 2009 with a list of projects that will most likely see action taken this year.

  In the fall, bus stop shelters began to crop up around town. During a couple of Council meetings, Councilor Nona Bowman expressed her interest in having some art put on the shelters. The Arts in Public Places Board put out a call for artists and to date, they have only received two proposals. Staff Liaison Stephani Johnson said that the artists she talked to expressed concerned about their artwork becoming County property and not being able to use it for other projects, therefore the Board did not get the number of proposals they hoped for. The County’s contract states that the artist reserves the right to copy and reproduce their artwork. If the Board decides to do so, the date for artwork submittals could be reopened. This topic will be discussed at next month’s meeting.

  In addition the Board’s work plan and five-year plan have been sent out for Board members to review.

  In an effort t beatify the new Eco Station, Environmental Services Manager Regina Wheeler and Johnson have drafted a letter of interest for artwork at the Eco Station.
