Commissionmembers enjoyed viewing the links Dikis <br />provided on lighting ideas. <br />Budget Review- <br />No changes. <br />New Business- <br />Shuler Public Art Memorial- <br />Schmidt updated the Commission on the status of the Shuler project. The chosen artists, <br />Rebecca Ekstrand/Thomas Rosborough, were talking to engineers at Iowa State and others <br />recommended by Seth Gray from Confluence. Ekstrand also is working on finalizingthe <br />design of the panels. She is considering using Iowa Metal Fabrication as the sculpture <br />fabricator. Schmidt had Graymock up a panel to see what the scale of the panels would be. <br />The Commission agreed that the panel size would be adequate. Schmidt indicated there <br />would be another meeting with Ekstrand and Rosborough in the next couple of weeks once <br />they had more information and had a final proposal. Schmidt commented that she felt we <br />needed professional help with the sculpture's site plan. It also had to be determined whether <br />the City was responsible for the site preparation and footings. Currently the project has <br />raised $62,000, and after subtracting the artists’ commission, maintenance fund, and <br />professional services for site preparation, very little remains for lighting, donor recognition, <br />and benches. She asked the Commission whether money should be taken from the 2010- <br />2011 budget to use for completion of the Shuler project.The Commission did have $11,000 <br />in unallocated expenditures that could be made available for Shuler.The current budget for <br />the Shuler project is as follows: <br />$62,000Budget Assets <br /> -45,000Artists' Commission <br /> -4,500Maintenance fund <br />-8,000 <br /> Professional Site Work <br /> $ 3,500Remaining Assets <br />Questions were raised regarding the site for the art placement; Dikis suggested that if the site <br />was moved to the top of the hill, site preparation would likely be cheaper since additional <br />sidewalks would not be needed. Locating the sculpture at the top of the hill might provide <br />better access to the back panels of the sculpture. The Commission agreed that we should <br />consider moving the site of the sculpture up near the parking area of Shuler Elementary. <br />Schmidt will explore with Gray <br /> <br />
