The agenda for this month’s Arts committee meeting was not sent out in advance, but the meeting did happen at its usual time and place.

At the meeting, Ed Fuentes delivered certificates of appreciation from the city to Russell Brown and Dale Youngman for helping to foster his mural on the Regent Theatre.

The CRA presented their work to create signage for the Gallery Row area, and those present voiced their approval. The signage will include “medallions” on street lamps that are nearly twelve feet long (but only five inches tall), vinyl stickers for gallery windows, and possibly sidewalk signage using the same process as the decorative crosswalks at 5th and Main.

Dale Youngman presented the prototype of information kiosks that she has developed that will be placed outside during the monthly ArtWalk. She hopes to incorporate elements from the CRA’s Gallery Row signage program, and roll out more kiosks at the next ArtWalk.

A short discussion was had about how to handle the various groups that come to the Arts committee looking for funding or “letters of support,” and Celia Winstead volunteered to come to next month’s meeting with a draft of guidelines.

Finally, the idea of a downtown-wide online events calendar was discussed, and Mark Walsh agreed to look at doing this as part of his Downtown Artists Guide.
