Woodburn art and mural committee seeks new members
The city of Woodburn is accepting applications to serve on the Public Arts and Mural Committee.
The Woodburn Public Arts and Mural Program will facilitate the creation, placement and funding of public art projects that inspire and delight the visitors and community members of Woodburn. Through this program art will enliven public space, promote identity and sense of place, and contribute to a vibrant and engaging community.
The Woodburn Public Arts and Mural Committee is appointed to serve as the committee to evaluate, select, acquire, document and register public art and murals on behalf of the City of Woodburn. The Committee shall create a Public Arts and Mural Master Plan in order to identify opportunities for the placement of art in public locations.
A recently changed ordinance has adjusted the committee to include public art in general, not just murals.
So far, the city has three public murals: on the CAPACES building on Young Street, on the south wall of the Woodburn First Presbyterian Church at the corner of Boones Ferry Road and Highway 214, and the south wall of the Woodburn Independent office on the corner of FIrst Street and LIncoln Street.
If you have a passion for art or just want to become more engaged in the community, complete the Woodburn Public Arts and Mural Committee member application at www.woodburn-or.gov.
