Art Commission OKs Mural Pilot Project

At its Nov. 9, 2010 meeting, the Ann Arbor Public Art Commission unanimously approved a pilot program to create murals throughout the city. A task force will be formed to identify two city-owned sites during the first year for locating the murals, at a cost between $2,500 to $10,000 each, and funded through the city’s Percent for Art program. The pilot program – proposed by AAPAC commissioner Jeff Meyers, who’ll serve as the program’s task force chair – calls for selecting artists from Michigan. The goal is to have the first mural installed by the summer of 2011.

This brief was filed from AAPAC’s meeting on the 7th floor of the City Center offices. A more detailed report of the meeting will follow: [link]
