Title

Pond Murals at City Hall (B)

 

Explanation

At the October 2, 2019 APPT meeting, Cultural Affairs Manager Russell Etling discussed the idea of painting a bold abstract mural in the two ponds in front of City Hall before they are refilled. Staff reached out to the University of Florida School of Art and Art History. Julia Morrisroe was selected as the artist. The mural themes will talk about the relationship between city government and the community. The supplies were recently delivered and the mural began on November 21, 2019.

 

Recommendation

The board members of the Gainesville Art in Public Places Trust will discuss the funding needed to complete the murals in the ponds at City Hall.
