Public Art Committee

City of Rome Public Art Committee

Public Art is planned and exhibited in the public environment. It often interprets the history of the place, people and social issues. It is free and accessible to everyone. It instills meaning, a greater sense of identity and understanding of where we live, work and visit.

The City of Rome accepts the responsibility for expanding the public experience with visual art and therefore establishes a policy to direct the inclusion of works of art in public spaces of the City through a Public Arts Committee.

The Public Arts Committee meets the Fourth Thursday of each month at 9:30 am as needed. When staff has determined that an application is complete and has reviewed all necessary departmental approvals, a meeting will be scheduled and notices will be sent. The committee consists of one (1) member of the Historic Preservation Committee, four (4) members of the DDA Design Committee, the President of the Rome Area Council for the Arts or designee, the President of the Rome Art Coterie or designee, the President of the Chiaha Guild or designee, City of Rome Public Services Manager, City of Rome Neighborhood Sustainability Director, a Member of the Rome Floyd County Planning Department, Rome Convention and Tourism Executive Director, and the City Manager or his designee. The Public Arts Committee will review completed applications and make a recommendation to the Rome City Commission for final disposition.

Artwork acquired and maintained within the collection should reflect the highest aesthetic standards. Accepted artwork should be able to be permanently exhibited in an appropriate site, and be able to be maintained for public display according to the guidelines. The City’s collection should be diverse in its representation of artists, styles and be reflective of the diversity of the local population. The collection should be relevant within the cultural, historical, social and environmental context of the City of Rome and Floyd County.
