City to hold “Imagine Art Here!” public art workshop

Post Date:April 21, 2017
The City of Lewisville is embarking on a process of planning for public artworks in the city. As part of that process, the City will hold the “Imagine Art Here!” public art workshop on Tuesday, May 2, 5:30-8:30 p.m., at Medical City Lewisville Grand Theater, 100 N. Charles Street.

The planning process will help establish a vision for public art, explain why public art is important to Lewisville, and identify opportunities for public art projects throughout the community. The City is seeking creativity throughout the community to help shape the public art plan. The workshop will feature presentations about public art and small group discussions about Old Town, LLELA, streetscapes, parks, greenways, gateways, and other aspects of the city.

This event is free and open to the public but attendance is limited. Dinner will be served at this workshop. Attendees must RSVP by emailing Jill Corbin at scorbin@cityoflewisville.com, or by calling 972.219.8446

Public art is art that is visually or physically accessible to the public and that is acquired by or donated to the City of Lewisville. It can take forms such as sculpture, integrated design in functional pieces and facilities, murals, and temporary or permanent exhibitions. It enhances design and creates connections expressing shared values and ideas about Lewisville and its unique qualities as a community.

Earlier this year, Lewisville City Council awarded a contract to create the city’s Public Art Master Plan. Public art components are included in four infrastructure projects approved by Lewisville voters in the November 2015 bond election. This is the first time public art had been included in the initial planning for a Lewisville capital project. Those public art components include permanent public art integrated into the new Multigenerational Recreation Center; permanent public art integrated into hike and bike trail additions; and permanent public art integrated into two major street construction projects.

A desire for public art also was expressed by the public during development of the Lewisville 2025 vision plan.
