|Public art is a visual representation intended for the free enjoyment, benefit and inspiration of the public and the aesthetic enhancement of the city in general.|
The Owensboro Public Art Commission (OPAC) resolves that in every project it undertakes, the first and most important consideration will be to ensure the very highest quality product and outcome. In order to maintain this goal of artistic integrity, OPAC will seek the advice and counsel of appropriate professionals, arts educators and artists, and its decision-making policies will be open to public comment and review.
OPAC shall encourage private firms and individuals to purchase and display on private property works of art the for free enjoyment and appreciation of the public; and may, by providing the advice of artists or otherwise, facilitate the purchase and placement of art.
OPAC shall promote the appreciation of visual art by the public in general and by young people in particular, and design and implement programs for that purpose.
On December 2, 2002, the Board of Commissioners of the City of Owensboro, Kentucky, established OPAC to develop and administer a public art program for the city.
