SUBJECT: Presentation on Art for Town Operations Center Percent for Art Project
DATE: February 28, 2005
Larry Kirkland, the artist selected for the Town Operations Percent for Art Projects, will make a presentation to update the Council on the art projects at the Public Works and Transit facilities.
On March 4, 2002, the Town Council established the Percent for Art Program, which provides for spending 1% of the budget of selected capital projects on public art. The resolution adopted on that date includes an outline of the process to select artists and art.
On September 7, 2004, the Council authorized the Town Manager to enter into two contracts with Larry Kirkland for public art projects at the Public Works and Transit portions of the Town Operations Center.
The Public Arts Commission and Mr. Kirkland will share plans for the Town Operations Center Percent for Art Projects with the Council for a courtesy review.
