Arts in Public Places

The Creative District is working with the Town Council to develop an arts in public places policy that will guide the selection, display, maintenance, and donation of public art. The policy would also establish a permanent funding stream for arts in public places, through a 2% for art fund from all capital projects in the Creative District and Town Parks. The Town Council is currently discussing the potential adoption of this policy.
