City of Sunny Isles Beach Now Accepting Applications for the New Public Arts Advisory Committee
Calling all art enthusiasts to advise the City Commission on matters of public art and policy
SUNNY ISLES BEACH, Fla., December 1, 2017 (Newswire.com) - The City of Sunny Isles Beach is now accepting applications for the new Public Arts Advisory Committee (PAAC), designed to advise the City Commission on matters of public art. Whether you are a professionally trained artist, engineer or urban planner, PAAC needs your affinity for art to help transform the City into a beacon of art and cultural diversity.
Committee members will work on a pro bono-basis and must possess qualifications in one or more of the following skills: visual or graphic arts, architecture and design, urban planning, public art and place-making curation, engineering, digital and display design and professionally trained artists.
We created a Cultural Master Plan to develop arts and cultural programming designed for the evolution and fruition of creative projects and spaces. We anticipate this new Public Arts Advisory Committee will further beautify what is already referred to as the 'jewel' of northeast Miami-Dade County, Sunny Isles Beach.
Chris Russo, Sunny Isles Beach City Manager
Members of PAAC serve two-year terms from Jan. 1, 2018, through Dec. 31, 2020. Five applicants will be selected to advise the Commission and make recommendations with respect to overall public art policy, methodology and selection of artwork to be placed on City-owned property, public arts projects and programs and other artistic-related tasks determined by the City Commission or City Manager.
“We created a Cultural Master Plan to develop arts and cultural programming designed for the evolution and fruition of creative projects and spaces,” says Sunny Isles Beach City Manager Chris Russo. “We anticipate this new Public Arts Advisory Committee will further beautify what is already referred to as the ‘jewel’ of northeast Miami-Dade County, Sunny Isles Beach.”

File your letter with the Office of the City Clerk at 18070 Collins Ave., 4th Floor, Sunny Isles Beach, Florida 33160. The deadline for submittal letters is Jan. 1, 2018.
