The Public Art Advisory Committee (PAAC) is seeking your input through a survey. PAAC exists to administer the Public Art Program by determining the placement of public art, type of art to be used, artists to be engaged, oversight of gifts of art, and expenditures related to the Public Art program.

The committee will be considering projects for $30,000 that has been budgeted for public art projects in public spaces in Iowa City. The PAAC has narrowed its focus to a group of specific public areas and project types and hopes to prioritize that group according to the community’s wishes. The popular Matching Grant Funds program and a neighborhood art project in the South District Neighborhood have been allocated funding by the committee.

Finally, the PAAC is seeking concept ideas from four categories determined in the Strategic Plan: Unexpected Art; Functional Art; Ephemeral Art and Private Property Art.
