The Art Programs Division develops and provides free access to artistic excellence. The division facilitates the creation of art representative of the character and identity of Tampa to major public-use projects and to heighten Tampa's reputation and visibility both regionally and nationally as a city culturally aware and supportive of the arts.The city of Tampa has a dedicated department that works with Parks and Rec and is worth checking out.I love Tampa's Cultura Arts department, manager and program and how its set up under the city. They recognize it is its own department!Robin does a great job and easy to talk with.I have been trying to convince our city of Lakeland to also have such a department!Meri Mass

We have a city arts commission that is in the process of drafting an arts & culture plan. Their work is currently stalled while they negotiate with city planners over where the plan will live within the city master plan. The arts commission is arguing in favor of creating a new header for “arts, culture & history” (or, alternately, just “cultural resources”); the city wants to locate it under “recreation.”
Can anyone share a precedent or best practices from your town, city or state that we can use to make the case against “recreation” (which not only fails to capture the impact of the arts on community, it establishes a perspective we clearly want to avoid).
