Marana News: Citizens’ Forum to embark on public art program


The Marana News' Danyelle Khmara profiled the Marana Citizen's Forum.

The Marana Citizen’s Forum chose a Public Art Program as its fall project during its first meeting last Thursday, and will develop recommendations for council on implementing a town-wide program.

The forum overwhelming agreed on public art, winning out over three other topics: The Gateway to Marana Main Street, Creating a Healthy Community and Tourism in Marana.

Twice a year, Marana holds citizens’ forums at which interested residents chose one project, from three to four ideas chosen by the Town Council, and come up with concrete steps towards implementation. The forum will present its recommendations to the Town Council on Nov. 21, addressing locations for artwork, criteria to evaluate art proposals and ways to incorporate art in private developments.
