District seeks art for new school
A public art hunt is on for the new K-12 school project.
Public buildings are required to set aside one-half of one percent of the cost of construction for art.
The school board decided Monday night to seek art produced by local artists, that is artists from the counties that lie within the school district boundaries.
The total money set aside for the art contribution is $120,000.
Board members discussed the possibility of sculpture either inside or outside, and graphics inside.
It was decided to solicit ideas from artists interested in making proposals.
School officials stated that the district will begin advertising for proposals. The school board will make the final selection of art.
