Broomfield Public Art Committee Meeting Summary
Broomfield’s Public Art Program Ties Into the Community Fabric.
What is currently working:
Broomfield Public Art is somewhat diverse and reflects the community values of family and our natural surroundings in a whimsical and approachable manner.
Broomfield Public Art encourages residents to get outside and experience the unexpected.
Broomfield Public Art is successful due to the steadfast support of civic leaders and city staff.
The Broomfield Public Art Committee members represents a range of perspectives and experiences and are respectful of each other.
Public Art in Broomfield is a result of collaboration between many community stakeholders including the North Metro Fire District, Peak Entertainment, Open Space and Trails and Parks and Recreation.
The Public Art programs have been very successful and the result is a permanent collection of 27 works and several rotating 2D and 3D exhibits.
What are the challenges?
The Broomfield Public Art Committee desires to do a better job of telling our story and engaging the community.
The evolution of roles and responsibilities of PAC members and city staff needs to be discussed and strategized.
Due to the success of the program, city staff is at capacity in regards to providing support to the PAC.
City has not defined how public art dollars can be used to enhance properties that are not city owned such as business centers and shopping malls.
Ideas to address challenges:
Create a participatory community public art project.
Seek input from school leaders regarding what they want and need and how the public art program could be of benefit.
Highlight one piece of public art a month and promote it on the LED sign, at a bus stop shelter, to city council, etc.
Add more city staff hours for community engagement/community development and how it relates to public art.
Continuing the discussion with the city regarding how to work with developers and businesses in regards to including public art at their sites.
