PUBLIC MEETING ON PUBLIC ART POLICY TONIGHT AT 7PM
Consultant Elizabeth Keithline of Wheel Arts Administration will seek community feedback on a draft statement on the future of public art for Gloucester and will discuss possible policy recommendations at a public meeting on Monday, December 7, at 7:00 pm at City Hall, 9 Dale Avenue, Gloucester. The public is encouraged to attend.
Per order of Mayor Theken, following community discussions about public art in Gloucester, the City and the Committee For the Arts hired consultant Keithline to gather information and make recommendations on a public art policy. In order to accurately begin to formulate what this policy should contain, Keithline asked 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 email@example.com. Keithline conducted a public meeting at City Hall on Wednesday, September 30th at 7:00 pm. She gave a presentation on possibilities in public art and reported interviews that she has conducted. A second presentation was made before City Council on October 13th. A second public meeting to be held on November 10 to present a draft of the new policy was postponed until December 7, 2015.
