Arlington County is in the process of updating the 2004 Public Art Master Plan (PAMP). The update will revisit the vision, opportunities, locations, themes, strategies, criteria, priorities and procedures outlined in the original plan, taking into consideration the changes that have occurred in Arlington since it was adopted. The PAMP update will coordinate with findings from the 2016 Arlington Arts strategic planning process, and other County plans that are expected to be completed within the year, including the Public Spaces Master Plan (POPS), the Four Mile Run Valley Area Plan, and the Lee Highway Visioning Study.
Please help us shape the future of public art in Arlington! Public outreach efforts will include a questionnaire, interviews, focus groups, open house (in coordination with the Public Spaces Master Plan update) and interactive artist engagement activities.
We would like to hear from you! Help inform the PAMP update by filling out this Questionnaire by June 19, 2017, 5:00 p.m.
