The Municipal Art Plan describes the status of continuing public art projects and establishes the scope of work and budgets for new projects. To create the plan, our staff meets with representatives from each of the city departments to discuss their art priorities and the recommended placement of artwork at specific sites. The Municipal Art Plan is developed by our staff, reviewed by the Public Art Advisory Committee and approved by the mayor.
Artwork projects are determined, in part, by One Percent for Art funding sources. Some funds are restricted to a new construction site or influenced by specific departmental goals and objectives. However, money placed in the Municipal Art Fund may be combined into projects that include funding from several sources. This enables us to create special projects and citywide programs that will have a greater impact than small-scale artworks peppered around the city.
