|SUBJECT:||REFERRAL TO THE FINANCE AND ECONOMIC RESILIENCY COMMITTEE - DISCUSSION REGARDING THE FEASIBILITY OF INCORPORATING ART TO PUBLIC INFRASTRUCTURE.|
|The Administration recommends a referral to the Finance and Economic Resiliency Committee.|
On September 20, 2021, Neighborhood and Quality of Life Committee (NQLC), Commissioner Steven Meiner submitted for consideration a discussion on the feasibility of incorporating art to public infrastructure. The NQLC referred with favorable recommendation to the Finance and Economic Resiliency Committee for discussion.
Creative placemaking is when arts and culture are integrated into community revitalization work. Creative placemaking aims to activate public and private spaces by enhancing the visual appeal of existing structures and streetscapes. The process of identifying community assets and using those to create vibrant, welcoming spaces for everyone to enjoy is vital.
In the interest of augmenting the visual experience for residents and visitors, municipalities have invited artists to transform industrial essentials into public works of art. One example that is commonly utilized is identifying electrical boxes for artistic enhancement as a form to incorporate art into a city's streetscape.
