RE: MUNICIPAL ART COLLECTION GIFT PROPOSAL APPLICATION
During recent months two forms of artwork were donated to the City for placement on city owned property. This brought it to the Public Arts Committee member’s attention that there was not currently in place, guidelines on accepting donations of this type.
At the April 15, 2010 Special Meeting the Public Arts Committee reviewed the Municipal Art Collection Gift Proposal Application submitted by staff for approval. Following is the excerpt from the minutes of that discussion:
C. Administrative Guidelines Update and Revisions
“Chair Newby commented that the next worksession would be devoted to review and discussion of the strategic plan she recommended taking these updates and do them too. She expressed thanks for the hard work performed by Mrs. Krause in the research and drafting of these documents. She requested the committee members to take the time to review the proposed draft documents that are included for review and to be prepared so some action can be taken at the next regular meeting.
Ms. Aplin commented on the form for accepting donations being very concise and clarified what is required before donating artwork.
Ms. Miller requested that the form be approved at this meeting since it was on the agenda.
MILLER/WOLFE - MOVED TO RECOMMEND APPROVAL OF THE MUNICIPAL ART COLLECTION GIFT PROPOSAL APPLICATION FORM AND FORWARD TO CITY COUNCIL FOR FINAL APPROVAL.
It was noted that once submitted and approved by council they could start using the form immediately. The members commented that it would have answered so many questions if they had this form before.
VOTE. YES. NON-OBJECTION. UNANIMOUS CONSENT.
The Public Arts Committee recommends City Council approve the form, Gift Proposal Application, for immediate implementation on future donations of created artwork that will be placed in or on a City owned property, trail, roadway or building.
