Public Art Commission Sets Retreat

The Ann Arbor public art commission voted to schedule a retreat on Wednesday, Nov. 20 at 4:30 p.m., at a location to be determined. The action took place at AAPAC’s Oct. 23, 2013 meeting. The item to create this committee was added to the agenda at the start of the meeting.

The point is to review the selection of projects for the commission’s annual plan, as well as to help build rapport among commissioners. Three new commissioners have joined AAPAC this year: Devon Akmon, Ashlee Arder, and Nick Zagar. The retreat will be held in place of the commission’s regular Nov. 27 meeting, which has been canceled. Update: The Nov. 20 retreat was subsequently canceled, as was AAPAC’s Nov. 27 regular meeting.

This brief was filed from the basement conference at city hall, 301 E. Huron, where the public art commission holds its meetings. A more detailed report will follow: [link]
