Public Art Advisory Committee

The purpose of the City of West Fargo Public Art Advisory Committee is to review and recommend public art installations and performances on city-owned public property to the City Commission. This newly-formed Committee also assists city staff in identifying ordinances or procedures that can be streamlined or enhanced to better promote public art within city limits. Finally, the Committee seeks ways to engage the West Fargo community to improve the quality of life for the city’s residents through the promotion of public art.

Membership

  • Five open positions on the committee. 
  • Each committee member is appointed for a three-year term by the West Fargo City Commission President and is subject to confirmation by the West Fargo City Commission. 
  • Committee members must reside within West Fargo city limits and must be able to commit to at least one hour monthly meetings. 
  • No prior experience with public art is needed but those who are artists are strongly encouraged to apply.
