Commissioner Endresen Seeking Citizens Interested In Art Board

  • Developing criteria for the selection of artists or works of art.
  • Making recommendations to the Commissioners on any artists, works of art or sites for public art funded by the Capital Improvement Program.
  • Making recommendations to the Commissioners on the support of any art programs and advising them on any arts or cultural properties and programs.
