Specifically, the objectives and functions of the voluntary panel are to:

  • Bring professional skills and knowledge to the process of public art acquisition, management and disposal
  • Involve local, esteemed arts professionals
  • Be entrusted to represent our diverse community with recommendations for decisions on commissioning, siting and decommissioning of pieces
  • Participate in quarterly meetings that may include research (additional meetings may be held if necessary and by agreement of the majority members).
