Citizen Guest

Tony Coppi is a student at SOU.  His capstone project involves creating an art wall at the Skateboard Park.  Citizens would be permitted to use the wall as a canvas and skateboarders can use the wall as a skate ramp.  Longshore encouraged him to attend the PAC meetings to get a sense of what is involved to implement the concept.  Benson stated that there are many considerations including who will maintain the wall, regulate content etc.  Coppi is eager to learn about the process and challenges.



The plaque for the Krigel has been ordered.  New covers, for mounting the sculptures,  are being fabricated for the pedestals.  Installation cannot occur until PAC receives notice that the pieces are insured by the city.  Insurance costs will be paid with Krigel funds.  Seltzer will check with city for insurance update.


McGee memorial

Excavation and installation of the piece will occur the week of May 8.  The plaque has been ordered and we are waiting for a proof from Hagen Fine Arts.  Discussion about the unveiling of the piece and it was agreed that the event does not need to occur the week of installation.  Longshore will check with the artists to determine a time when she can return to Ashland for an unveiling at a later date.  Longshore and Seltzer will prepare information for media.


Policy and Procedures

Drafts will continue and Bayard, Longshore and Gay will meet sometime this summer to review and compile a final draft.
