(UPDATED) Pomona Public Art Ordinances Pass
On Monday, November 7, 2011, two Public Art ordinances went before the Pomona City Council and passed on a vote of 5 to 2. The first ordinance establishes a public art requirement for private developers and the second establishes guidelines for art in public places.
Pomona arts advocates worked on development of the ordinances for the past three years, with the goal of increasing the creation and accessibility of public art in Pomona. Supporters cite the role of public art in enhancing the vitality of a city, developing community pride and identity, and improving the general welfare and community life.
Arts for LA is currently developing a network of advocates in Pomona as a part of our Advocacy Team initiative. For more information on this year's advocacy team activities and to sign up to participate, please click here.
