Call Updates and Questions/Answers 

Update for January 20, 2017
The restroom at the 510 location is an option for the submittal. Artist concepts can include the restroom building or may be omitted. Because the structure is coated with anti-graffiti coating, the structure walls cannot be directly painted; however, the commission will consider all other ideas for this area including affixing mixed media, mural panels or other art on the walls. All ideas welcome.

1. What does the City anticipate/require for longevity of the art? How often, if at all, do you think the City will want to "rotate" murals?
a. We anticipate the art will be permanent. We hadn’t previously considered rotating but are open to all ideas.
