Asheville holds forum on public art project
ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - As Asheville tries to further its commitment to public art, the city is holding a forum to learn what residents think should go on a section of wall at the new city parking garage.
The Asheville Citizen-Times reported (http://avlne.ws/1jER0sQ) the hearing will be held Friday to discuss the garage at 51 Biltmore Ave.
The city is implementing a policy this year that allocates 1 percent of the cost of municipal capital projects to art. Debbie Ivester of the city parks department says the City Council adopted the policy for spending money on public art in 2010 but has implemented it slowly.
