June 6, 2007 - The City of Knoxville
is working toward establishing a Public Art Program to guide and
manage art installations in public places.
This new initiative is being driven by citizen interest in beautifying
the civic environment as well as the citys need to effectively
manage the use of the public property.
Knoxville will consider effective models from other cities, including
Nashville and Chattanooga, who have adopted public art programs.
While this program will not affect existing public art, no additional
installations will be permitted on public property until the program
can be effectively implemented.
