Public Art was recognized by the MCA Development Committee as one of the funding priorities for FY20. Public art is more than simply an art form. In the words of Maggie Bolt, " It is a principle whereby the involvement and activities of artists contribute to the identity, understanding, appreciation, and enhancement of public places."
In the coming year we will begin exploring ways to provide more public art, and what forms this might take. There are opportunities for outdoor sculpture installations, for transforming unsightly electrical boxes into painted canvases, or initiating an artist-in-residency program to name a few.
