RECOMMENDED PUBLIC ART PLAN FOR THE 2014 CIP

On September 23, 2014, Chairman Greg Ibañez presented the Art Commission’s recommended Public Art Plan for the 2014 Capital Improvement Program (CIP). The project sites recommended in the plan are those that offer the best opportunities for artist involvement, the greatest public visibility, and geographic distribution throughout Fort Worth. Public art funds generated by bond-funded capital projects are expended within the corresponding bond proposition and may be pooled to one or more sites, as appropriate, to ensure that project budgets are sufficient to make an impact. The Art Commission thanks the community for their input on the plan at the public hearings and on YourFortWorth.org. The City Council will consider adoption of the plan on October 14, 2014.
