Metropolitan Public Art Coalition circulates petition for Beltline funds

The nonprofit Metropolitan Public Art Coalition (MPAC), whose board members include Cathy Byrd, Gregor Turk, and Lisa Tuttle among others, is trying to rally support for the funding of public art along the Beltline through an online petition. The petition references the city of Atlanta's Public Art Ordinance (ref.: 08-O-1884), "which requires that the Atlanta Beltline, Inc. set aside the required 1.5% of the total amount of each bond issuance for public art." Basically, MPAC wants to ensure that a portion of the funds generated by the Beltline's bonds would be secured for public art projects along the 22-mile loop.

Check out the full petition here, and bring your questions, comments and concerns to the Oct. 12 mayoral candidate's Forum on the Arts at the Woodruff Arts Center's Rich Auditorium (the event is sponsored by the Metro Atlanta Arts & Culture Coaltion and the MPAC).
