    Fine Arts Programs

    I have been working with our fine arts board, and I was wondering if any one has information of other arts programs for cities of about 80,000 (class 3 city). Our board has not done all that much, but one part we do like is a required 1% Fine Arts Contribution for all development with in a redevelopment areas. But, our city is still lacking in a lot of the Art works, with in the city.

    I don't know exactly how the arts program is set-up where I live, but it's a city about the same size as yours.

    My employer (City of Fairfield, California-population 102,000) has a somewhat active public arts program. We have a development fee for "urban design" projects that can incoporate public art, and the Cordelia/Green Valley area of our city has a, I believe, a 1% fee. We've had a few projects, some city-sponsored and others directly provided by the developer.

    Our urban design department has a proactive public arts program...I can't remember what the criteria is for developer contributions. We're a much larger city though.

    Check out the City of Boise Arts Commission. Boise is a little bit larger than your city, but they have done some really nice projects. The City recently adopted a requirement that 1.4% of some capital projects be dedicated to public art.

    Does anyone have a Fine Art's Board that they work with?
