Is there anything else you would like to share about your vision for Public Art in Dublin?
Public art should be about what the public wants, not what the City Council wants. We have a Heritage and Cultural Arts Commission that should be leading the effort. It seems as though city staff are trying to limit public input by not including hearings and meetings sponsored by the Heritage and Cultural Arts Commission.
