For Immediate Release: Nov. 3, 2010

 

 

Apply now for Goodyear's Arts and Culture Commission

 

 

GOODYEAR, ARIZ. (Nov. 3, 2010) Four seats on the Goodyear Arts and Culture Commission are open, and candidates are encouraged to apply. The deadline for submitting an application is noon, Friday, Nov. 12. Candidates must be residents of Goodyear, and if appointed, will serve terms of three years.

 

Arts and Culture Commissioners are appointed by the city council. The Arts and Culture Commission has eight members, guides the city's public art program, and makes recommendations regarding projects and policy to the city council and staff. As community ambassadors, members of the Arts and Culture Commission actively engage the community, and:

 

·         Advocate for art in public places, arts programming and arts education

·         Recommend policies and priorities for Goodyear's public art program including the allocation of funds designated annually for the Public Art Project Plan

·         Engage in citizen outreach at city and neighborhood events

·         Seek partnerships and opportunities with public and private organizations to foster the encouragement of economic development and tourism.

 

The Arts and Culture Commission believes that art enhances Goodyear's quality of life. The Goodyear City Council, in 2006, approved both the establishment of an Arts and Culture Commission and a Percent-for-Art Ordinance, which mandates that up to one percent of the Capital Improvement Budget be allocated for art. Members of the Arts and Culture Commission are dedicated volunteers who are committed to identifying and developing a common artistic and cultural personality for Goodyear that embraces, celebrates and unites our diverse histories, beliefs, cultures and aspirations.
