PAC is a citizen committee dedicated to developing, promoting, nurturing, and celebrating public art in Lafayette. Members are responsible for establishing goals and objectives for public arts programs, selecting art work, coordinating installations, establishing budgets, marketing, and promotion. PAC works with the Lafayette Cultural Arts Commission and the Cultural Resources Division. PAC is a member-driven committee with limited city staff resources; members are expected actively participate and attend meetings.
Committee members are directly involved in the management of several programs including the Art on the Street, a 16 piece sculpture on loan program. The committee plans related events and directs an Education Outreach program with local schools. The commission also participates in acquiring and installing permanent sculptures in the City of Lafayette.
Winner of the 2012 Governor’s Art Award and recently self-identified as Creative?Diverse?Eclectic, Lafayette is an up and coming, unique arts community. Lafayette residents are encouraged to apply for this opportunity to contribute to the ongoing development of our vibrant arts community. Members of PAC need not be artists, but should appreciate the arts and all that a public arts program brings to a community. Members need at least one year of Lafayette residency and attend a monthly meeting on the second Wednesday of each month. Additional work may be required occasionally, based on current projects and programs.
