The motion was unanimously approved. Upon a motion made by Shanks and <br /> seconded by Leibold, the minutes were unanimously approved. <br /> Announcement from the Chair- None. <br /> Budget Review- McQuillen advised the Commission there was approximately $31,000 in the PAAC <br /> budget and $9,750 in the Maintenance Trust Fund. <br /> Old Business- <br /> City Hall Lobby Art- McQuillen reported on the discussions he had with the City Manager and the <br /> Mayor regarding the City Hall Lobby proposal. Based on those discussions, the faux trees, table, quilt <br /> and corporate art will be removed. Levine volunteered to contact local stores to ask for a discount on a <br /> TV/Digital Picture Frame for the lobby. The optimum size would be at least 60". The Digital Picture <br /> Frame would have a continuous loop of pictures displaying Clive artwork commissions, parks and other <br /> City highlights. If a TV is purchased instead, it would offer more features such as the ability to view <br /> video. Based on the results of Levine's search, the PAAC will purchase the best option available for the <br /> lobby. The subcommittee will continue to work on a proposal to have a photography <br /> competition/exhibition. <br /> Kids for Art in Clive- Shanks reported the annual Kids for Art in Clive Exhibition was a success. The <br /> exhibition held in conjunction with the Clive Festival on July 14 had an increase in attendance. The only <br /> issue was the humidity in the room caused some pictures to curl. Murphy suggested that the pictures <br /> have foam core backings next year to prevent the problem. He also will be looking into the cost of <br /> portfolios that could be left with schools to collect art for the 2013 exhibition. He would like to see <br /> more participation from schools such as Dowling, Des Moines Christian and Waukee. Members <br /> recommended that an earlier contact with the schools might result in more participation. <br /> New Business- <br /> Art Along the Trail- <br /> McQuillen handed out photos of the six sculptures included in this year's the Art Along the Trail <br /> exhibition. The two pieces receiving the highest number of votes were Paths United and Peaceful <br /> Journey. The PAAC members discussed the factors to consider when deciding which sculpture to <br /> recommend for purchase (i.e. public votes, price, possible site locations, etc). After a lengthy discussion, <br /> a motion was made by Leibold and seconded by Keating that the PAAC recommend to the City Council <br />
