Art Commission Votes On More Dreiseitl Art

At their July 13, 2010 meeting, the Ann Arbor Public Art Commission debated and voted on two pieces of art by Herbert Dreiseitl, designed for the new police/courts building at Fifth and Huron. With dissent from AAPAC chair Margaret Parker, commissioners voted not to approve an interior piece for the building’s atrium, which had a proposed budget of $73,806. They tabled action on a second piece, priced at $141,218, with the goal of clarifying some cost information and capping the cost at $75,000. The city has already commissioned the German artist to construct a large water sculpture in front of the building, paying $737,820 for that work.
