Hi, Lynn – my answers indicate our status as of today, since things are always in flux due to these unprecedented times:


  1. Current active projects are still underway
  2. We can still move forward on RFQ’s (at least on the design component) on projects that have previously been approved.


Key will be seeing what if anything may or may not be allocated next fiscal year as we determine what the economic downturn may mean for new capital or private development public art projects.

Subject: What is the future of percent-for-art programs?


I realize this question might be too soon, but I'm about to teach a class to a bunch of anxious artists who are interested in hearing our best guess.  With respect to your own programs:


1)  Are funds that are already allocated for commissions going to stay in the pipeline or will they go away?


2)  Will you be issuing new RFQ's or are you getting signs that everything is on hold?


Thank you,





Lynn Basa, President
