<br />Clive Public Art Advisory Commission Meeting <br />Wednesday, January 27, 2010 <br />Clive City Hall, 1900 NW 114th Street, Clive, Iowa <br /> <br />Call to order: Chairman Bill Dikis called the meeting to order at 5:22 PM. <br /> <br />Members Present: Yvonne Brune, Dikis, Chaden Halfhill, Anne Keating, Chuck Kuba, Tracy Levine, and <br />Karen Leibold. <br /> <br />Members Absent: Linda Shanks and Tom Murphy <br /> <br />Staff and Guests Present: Lisa Schmidt, Clive Assistant City Manager <br /> <br />Motion to approve agenda and minutes made by Brune and seconded by Leibold. Motion passed <br />unanimously. <br /> <br />Announcements from Chair- None. <br /> <br />Budget Review- Schmidt indicated that the updated budget shows a negative carry forward. However, <br />the budget shows the entire $45,000 for the public art pieces at University Blvd. plaza. The Council had <br />indicated that it would be willing to put up $10,000 toward the second art piece from the 86th St <br />Corridor project if the Commission was not able to raise funds through its Sticks tile sale. Dikis <br />suggested that the budget show the amount for the second University Blvd. plaza artwork as a <br />forgivable loan. Schmidt also indicated that the amount budgeted for office supplies, printing and <br />postage would probably not be used. At the next meeting she will provide a spreadsheet showing how <br />many Sticks tiles have been sold and what they have cost us to produce. <br /> <br />Website Review- Schmidt indicated that the City was revamping the look of its website and that this <br />might offer an opportunity for quicker access to the public art site. The City is in the process of <br />obtaining the URL and when it does have it, it will link to our website. Schmidt will be <br />adding a photo album link to our webpage from the Flickr account. Schmidt asked for Commission <br />members to provide her with information and pictures for our blog. <br /> <br />New Business- <br />? <br />Dikis suggested that we look at the Commission meeting time and date to see if that still works <br /> <br />for most Commission members. It was agreed by those members present that meeting the <br />fourth Wednesday of the month at 5:30 p.m. was the most convenient time rather than meeting <br />at 5:15 p.m. <br /> <br />Staff Report- <br />? <br />Schmidt stated that approximately $25,000 has been raised for the Shuler artwork. The Waukee <br /> <br />school district is unwilling to conduct a fundraising project with Sticks tiles. It has agreed to <br />send a flier out to prospective students' families seeking donations. Schmidt requested further <br />direction from the Commission. If the artwork is not located on the school property, the <br />alternative location is near the school on City property by the trail and retention pond. The <br />Commission discussed whether to consider locating the artwork near the retention pond, <br />whether we should seek Waukee civic group involvement or to seek the support of community <br />leaders who live in Waukee. The Commission also discussed whether to seek a legal opinion to <br /> <br />
