Dear Public Art Network listserv members,


We have a nascent public art program, which is administered by a Public Art Advisory Panel.  We came to the realization a few months in that two of the members of the panel brought in for their expertise in structural engineering and landscaping respectively, would present a conflict of interest for the businesses where they work for projects we are planning, and they stepped down.  We’ve replaced them with city employees.


The question now is how do we deal with having artists on the panel?  Do we have to have artists sign a waiver that they will not apply to any projects for a certain amount of time during and after their tenure on the panel?  What about sharing information with other artists?  Do we need to have them agree not to share any information that is not being shared publicly?  How does that work?


I would love some best practices guidance from folks out in the field.
