City of South Burlington, VT
December 15, 2016
Initiated 2014, adopted 2015, amended 2016.
The City of South Burlington is micro city on the edges of a regional destination. We are a City known for schools, sports, shopping, highways and corporate headquarters, not a thriving art hub. Yet the City Council has supported a policy that will result in public art being incorporated into public projects and established a public art selection committee to recommend what art gets funded. This committee has now issued a Call to Artists to commission a $50,000 art piece. How do you go about writing a policy that supports and funds art in public projects? How do you get your local government to adopt it? How do you fund art in public projects? Learn step by step how a little City in Vermont did just that, discuss important components of a policy, and strategies to get it adopted.
