Now Accepting Applications For Marquette Public Art Commission

The Marquette City Commission recently adopted a Public Art Policy. The City recognizes that the inclusion of art in appropriate capital improvement projects in the City will promote its cultural heritage and artistic development, enhance the City’s character and identity, contribute to economic development and tourism, add warmth, dignity, beauty and accessibility to spaces accessible to the public, and expand the experience and participation of citizens with the arts. The adopted policy established a Public Art Commission and made funding available to support the inclusion of works of art in public spaces in the City. At this time, the City of Marquette is seeking residents to serve on the Marquette Public Art Commission (MPAC). The seven-member volunteer oversight body will be responsible for developing guidelines and administering the new Policy.

The MPAC will be made up of seven regular members appointed by the City Commission, of which at least four members must be art professionals (artist, performing artist, architect, landscape architect, curator, arts writer, arts educator, arts administrator or individual with a college level degree in an art field). The three remaining members simply require an interest in public art and commitment to our community. All members will meet the board and committee membership requirements set forth in the City Charter and will serve staggered three-year terms.

Applications are available on the City website at www.marquettemi.gov/committeeapplication or in the City Manager’s Office located at 300 W. Baraga Ave. The City Commission will begin reviewing applications starting in December to begin the selection process; however, applications will be accepted on an ongoing basis. Please call 228-0472 or email arts-culture@marquettemi.gov for more information.
