Public Art Commission

The Marquette City Commission recently adopted a Public Art Policy, effective Oct. 1, 2017. 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.
