Policies and Procedures
Approve final draft policies and procedures M/S Longshore/Gay passed by full PAC. Seltzer to post on web.
Seltzer gave a brief update on the vandalism to Oyster. The piece appeared to have been kicked and bent to one side. Seltzer contacted the artist and insurance company. A “notice of occurance” was filed with the insurance. Bruce Bayard took photos (the piece had since been straightened) and sent them to the artist. After numerous conversations with artist Steve Jensen, the artist decided to leave the piece in place and make repairs after it is returned to him.
Diane Amorotico is the primary contact between the PAC and the Purdy sculpture representative. She submitted five slides for the PAC to view and select a piece of art. M/S Pugh/Gay unanimous vote, the PAC agreed to select the deer. Seltzer will contact D. Amorotico to follow through on the logistics.
Markell reported on the presentation to council and announced that PAC had approval to implement the budget for master planning. The PAC agreed to meet every Monday for the next few months due to the amount of work required to begin the work. Bussell will be the point person for the SOU student/capstone project, Pugh will coordinate advertising, Rickbone will coordinate outreach, Gay will coordinate/research facilitators, Wilkerson will chair the master plan meetings, Markell will coordinate locations for meetings.

Commissioners met with Adrienne Graham. Graham has worked as a facilitator for La Clinica under the direction of public art commissioner Dennis Gay (HR Director La Clinica).
Graham explained how she would approach facilitating public meetings for public art master planning, the pre-work and post work involved as a facilitator. She recommended getting the survey out in advance of the public meetings, the need for PAC to clearly define the purpose statement of the master planning process, the importance of getting the word out in advance of the meetings etc. Graham finished her presentation at 9:00 a.m. and left. Graham was asked to develop a proposal for the process for commission review.
Commissioners met with Karen Bolda, also a referral by Dennis Gay. Karen explained her background in facilitation and her recommendations for the public process. Bolda finished her presentation at 9:30 and left. Bolda was asked to develop a proposal for commission review.
Commissioners discussed both presenters and agreed to review the proposals at the full PAC meeting on October 20. There was general agreement that Graham is their first choice.
