Public Art Implementation Plan

Your Community. Your Voice. Your Public Art.

The City of Dunwoody will hold a virtual meeting to update the community on the public art implementation planning process, which is designed to bring an artful touch to public spaces, gathering places and projects. The meeting will take place at 6 p.m. on August 4, 2020. It can be accessed through Zoom or Facebook Live.

Following on the Arts and Culture Master Plan, the city is looking for the best opportunities to bring an artful touch to Dunwoody's public spaces, gathering places and projects. A public survey conducted in the spring of 2020 will help the planning team understand the community’s goals and how art projects can support them.

The City has hired Todd Bressi, a consultant who specializes in public art, placemaking and urban design, and who has worked in a variety of Georgia communities, to help identify actionable opportunities that best meet Dunwoody’s needs. During the course of his research, he will be consulting with arts, business and civic organizations in a variety of ways, including this survey. Working with the city, he will also organize a pilot project that will demonstrate that Dunwoody’s placemaking efforts are already underway.

Dunwoody’s Public Art Implementation Plan will be presented to the Dunwoody City Council for consideration in the late summer of fall of 2020. It will focus on the process for funding, approving and managing the kinds of projects envisioned in the 2018 Arts & Culture Master Plan.

Background

In October 2018, the City of Dunwoody completed its Create Dunwoody Arts and Culture Master Plan, which stated that arts, culture and placemaking can be economic drivers and civic catalysts, while providing educational benefits and cultural legacies for the community. Two of the key recommendations were to step up public art and placemaking projects.
