Staff and Public Art Advisory Board

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.
