Project Updates


The two outdoor sculptures for the Calle staircase cannot be installed until they are covered by insurance.  The city does not cover public art and has asked for a separate quote from the insurance provider to cover the two sculptures.  No action can be taken until the pieces are covered by insurance.



Longshore is coordinating the unveiling for Nourishing Our Community and a reception at Standing Stone Brewery on Monday June 12 at 6:00 p.m.  the piece has been installed and the plaque ordered.  It is anticipated that the plaque will be installed in the next few weeks.  Artist, Lonnie Feather will attend the unveiling.  Former commissioner Bayard is designing and printing invitation postcards for the event.  Longshore and markell will assist.



Gay, who has taken the lead role on this project was not at the meeting.  Seltzer explained the project, how it originated, the on-going work etc.
