Citizens Sought for County Art Board

PORT ORCHARD, WA—If you are a local artist or knowledgeable in the arts, the Kitsap Board of County Commissioners would like to encourage you to apply for District 2 and District 3 openings on the Art Board. The Art Board promotes and encourages private and public programs that further public awareness and develop an interest in the arts and cultural properties.

The ordinance that established the “1% for Art Program” tasked the Art Advisory Board with:

  • Establishing a system of coordination with the County Capital Improvement Program to ensure that works of art are integrated into public facilities.

  • 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.

Commissioner District 3 applicants are also being sought.

An Application may be obtained at Kitsap County Volunteer Services, Department of Administrative Services, 614 Division Street, Port Orchard. Application packets are available online or by mail. Please contact Jan Koske at (360) 337-4650 or email. Applications must be submitted no later than 4:30 p.m. on December 30, 2005.
