City of Orlando Public Art Advisory Board
Shortly after the City of Orlando Public Art Program was established, the Public Art Advisory Board was created to ensure community representation in the direction of the program. The Public Art Advisory Board consists of diverse citizens within the community who have the desire to respond to the growing demand for art in Orlando. The responsibilities of the Public Art Board include assisting the Public Art Coordinator in the decision-making process of artist and project selection, which involve sites on or extending onto any city property. In addition to the board’s legislative responsibilities, they may also make recommendations on artwork purchases for the Public Art Permanent Collection. The Public Art Board is also responsible for constructing and assisting in the application of long-term projects and goals of the Public Art Program.
Public Art Coordinator/Collections Registrar
The Public Art Advisory Board is comprised of nine (9) members as follows:
Wherever possible, six (6) members shall be representative of one (1) or more of the following classifications:
- Architect or interior designer
- Landscape architect or land use planner
- Professional in the field of art
- Art or architectural historian
- Art educator
Four (4) members shall be citizens with knowledge of and appreciation for the visual arts.
If a board member is the architect or other design professional for a specific City project they may advise the Board during the selection process as it relates to his/her project but shall not be a voting member of the Board.
The position of a board member is a nonpaying volunteer appointment and the appointee serves as representatives of the citizens of the City of Orlando.
It is the City’s goal to provide an opportunity for as many qualified and willing individuals to serve.
