Art Commission OKs Strategic Plan

The Ann Arbor public art commission voted to support a four-year strategic plan, which identifies several major goals to pursue through fiscal 2016. The plan was discussed at AAPAC’s July 25, 2012 meeting. AAPAC chair Marsha Chamberlin, who drafted the plan based on previous commission discussions – including a February 2012 retreat – agreed to work on a final draft that incorporates changes suggested during Wednesday’s meeting.

Summaries of the goals are: (1) increasing the number of public art pieces throughout the city; (2) diversifying the public engagement and participation in selecting public art; (3) increasing the public’s support and appreciation for public art through PR efforts; and (5) pursuing private funding for public art. More detailed objectives are provided for each of the goals. [.pdf of draft strategic plan]
