ORDINANCE

Amending The Art In Municipal Places Ordinance To Provide For Increased Conservation, Maintenance Funds, And Define Digital And Temporary Public Art (Benton, Grout, Pe?a)
body
WHEREAS, the Public Art Urban Enhancement Division resides within the Department of Arts and Culture; and
WHEREAS, the funding for the City's public art program is a formulaic addition to the voter-approved general obligation bond program which has purchased or commissioned over 1400 works of public art since 1978; and
WHEREAS, there are growing numbers of works of art in the 44-year-old public art collection that require more complex and ongoing maintenance; and
WHEREAS, the cap of up to twenty percent of the one percent is no longer enough to keep up with the increased needs and costs for maintenance of primarily outdoor works of public art; and
WHEREAS, updating the definition of public art to include digital media temporary works of art will help reduce the costs of maintenance while building awareness of the arts in our community; and
WHEREAS, increasing the formula for public art to one- and one-half percent will provide additional funds for maintenance and conservation of existing and future outdoor sculptures and murals, and support digitally interactive temporary public art that would not require long term maintenance.
