-Information from The Arts and Science Council concerning the public art program:
"The ASC Public Art Program views public art as integral to a community's fabric by recognizing the potential of art to create livable cities, enhance neighborhood identities, strengthen economic development and tourism, educate children and adults, and enrich the spirit and pride of its citizens. A volunteer board, the Public Art Commission, oversees the artist selection process for the program."
"Charlotte-Mecklenburg's public art program was initiated in 1981. During 2002-03, Mecklenburg County Board of Commissioners and the Charlotte City Council adopted ordinances that allocate 1 percent of eligible capital investment funds for public art, ensuring that artworks will continue to grace our public spaces and enhance urban and economic development efforts."
