The city has determined that art—including architectural enhancement and special landscape treatment—should be planned as an integral part of the city. Enhancing the visual quality of the city scape will add to our residents quality of life and raise the level of awareness to the importance of aesthetic experiences in their everyday lives.
To further this goal, the City Council established the Public Art Advisory Board. The Board presents a Public Art Master Plan for review and approval by City Council and recommends specific public art projects, including the selection of works of art, special landscape treatments and architectural enhancements. The Board is comprised of seven members who serve on a voluntary basis.
The Artist Registry is open to all qualified professional artists* with experience in the process of implementing their ideas and work in the public realm. Artist teams are welcome to register. Artists must have at least five years of demonstrated professional art experience with a body of original, completed artwork.
Registrants must have experience integrating art into construction projects.
* For the purpose of this registry, “qualified professional artist” means a practitioner in the visual arts, generally recognized by critics and peers as possessing serious intent and ability. Indications of a person’s status as a professional artist include, but are not limited to, training in the arts, receipt of honors and awards, income from commissions of artwork and placement of artwork in public institutions, museums or private collections.
