RE: REQUEST FOR PUBLIC ART DONATION AND INSTALLATION
A request to donate two paintings entitled Kittywake II and Life’s a Beach by local artist Gaye Wolfe was received earlier this year. Formal review and approval was delayed due to meeting schedules and obtaining quorums. These two donations have been placed already at the request of City Hall personnel.
The Kittywake II currently hangs on the north wall of the upstairs reception area and the painting entitled, Life’s a Beach is displayed in the Planning Department lobby area.
The Public Arts Committee reviewed the applications submitted during a special meeting held on June 28, 2012. The excerpt from the minutes follows:
B. Review and Approval of Gifts of Art to the City (Postponed from the May 16, 2012 meeting)
Ms. Miller noted that this was in the packet at the last meeting and stated that she was quite ready to make a recommendation to submit to council.
MILLER/APLIN - MOVED TO SUBMIT A RECOMMENDATION TO COUNCIL TO APPROVE THE DONATION OF ARTWORK SUBMITTED BY GAYE WOLFE.
There was a brief discussion.
VOTE. YES. NON-OBJECTION. UNANIMOUS CONSENT.
The Public Arts Committee recommends City Council approve and accept the donation of the two paintings and incorporating them into the Municipal Artwork Collection.
