The Art along the Trail Project will include a call to artists <br />for sculpture thatwill temporarily loanedto the Cityfor display along the Clive trail <br />system. It is envisioned that the City will purchase one or two of the pieces of artworkat <br />the end of the exhibit.Schmidt also isapplying for additional funds from Prairie <br />Meadows. She will be entering discussions with certain business leaders to determine if <br />they would financially contribute to the Project. She will also be discussing it further <br />with the Clive Chamber of Commerce. A subcommittee is being formed to consider <br />locations along the trail system that would be appropriate for locating artwork. Three <br />members of the Park Board, three members of the Commission and a City Council <br />representative will comprise the subcommittee. The Commission members will be <br />Halfhill, Kuba,and Keating. Commission members reflected on how recent flooding <br />could be an issue in the placement of artwork. Leibold also requested that we keep in <br />mind that environmental installations (i.e. hedge maze) should also be considered in <br />addition to sculpture. Kuba inquired whether performance art should be considered. As <br />the City Master Plan is currently written, only visual arts are in the purview of the <br />Commission. This might change if and when the City invests in a public performance <br />facility. Dikis suggested that Kuba write the City and express his interest in being part of <br />any discussions down the road concerning performance art in Clive and any related <br />developments. <br />ART IN CITY HALL- <br />The Mayor has made a suggestion to improve the aesthetics of CityHall by having artists <br />temporarily loan artworkto the Cityfor display in public locations in City Hall and the <br />Library. Commission members made the following suggestions regarding the project: <br />Invite galleries to display artwork <br />o <br />Invite artists that have responded to City RFPs to display their work <br />o <br /> <br />
