Gloucester Public Art
THE CITY OF GLOUCESTER & THE COMMITTEE FOR THE ARTS WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU
Following community discussions about public art in Gloucester, the City and the Committee For the Arts have hired consultant Elizabeth Keithline of Wheel Arts Administration to gather information and make recommendations on a public art policy.
In order to accurately begin to formulate what this policy should contain, Keithline would like to hear from Gloucester residents about the following questions:
· What is your vision for public art in Gloucester? What would you like to see happen here?
· Do you have any recommendations on how that vision can become a reality?
· Name and/or describe public art in Gloucester that you like or don’t like.
· Do you have any recommendations on how Gloucester can improve its public art processes?
· Do you have any specific recommendations on what a public art policy for Gloucester should contain?
Please feel free to email your responses, or any information you care to share, to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 401/578-4313. All comments are unattributed.
Keithline will be conducting a public meeting at City Hall on Wednesday, September 30th at 7:00 pm. She will give a brief presentation on possibilities in public art and report out on the interviews that she has conducted. A second meeting will be held later this fall to present a draft of the new policy.
