Los Alamos County Council unanimously approved $91,000 in new public art Tuesday. The municipal building, justice center and nature center will all receive either purchased or commissioned pieces. In addition, council also approved two newly donated pieces for the aquatic center and White Rock visitor center.
All the new acquisitions are created by local or regional artists.
“I think this is an example of how as a community we establish ourselves, provide a certain self image and self respect and highlight some of the talents that are in our town,” Councilor David Izraelevitz said.
Expenditures for the acquisitions will come from the Art in Public Places Fund, a dedicated fund generated from a 1-percent tax on all Capital Improvement Projects and a .5-percent tax on all road construction projects costing more than $20,000.
The approved purchases include:
• $5,000 for 14 small and two large photographs by Minesh Bacrania documenting the construction of the municipal building. The photographs will be placed on the third floor of the municipal building.
• $2,450 for the purchase of four 14” x 14” watercolor paintings and a 24” x 24” watercolor depicting aspen scenes by Marjorie Madsen. The paintings will be hung in the second floor conference room of the municipal building.
