The City of Brookings has a vacancy on the Brookings Public Arts Commission, effective immediately. 

Public art enhances the built environment of a city and enriches the lives of its citizens.

  3. To oversee the Public Art Fund;
  4. To guide and monitor design development process through reviews at various stages to ensure artistic and design quality, integration with the site and relevance to the community;
  5. To approve the final design prior to fabrication; and
  6. To approve the final artwork, installation procedures, and maintenance plan prior to installation.

The BPAC shall include specific professional expertise in public art or the visual arts, such as contemporary arts curator, museum director, professor of art or art history, and design professionals such as architects, landscape architects, or urban planners.
