Urbana Arts and Culture Commission seeking new members

URBANA - The City of Urbana is currently accepting applications for new members on the Arts and Culture Commission.

Commissioners typically create an Annual Public Arts Program Plan, making recommendations to the city's mayor, city council, staff, and other groups. They also review proposals from individuals and groups for art displayed in spaces owned and maintained by the City of Urbana.

In addition to seek additional funding, including donations, grants, and other support that furthers public arts programs, the Commission develops programs and outreach activities for the city.

The Commission meets regularly on the second Tuesday of each month at 4:30 pm in the City Council Chambers at 400 S. Vine Street in Urbana. The meetings are open to the public.

Interested Urbana residents can apply by completing the FillableBoardApplication and emailing to vlkrishnan@urbanaillinois.us.

For more information, contact Vivian Krishnan via email at vlkrishnan@urbanaillinois.us or by phone at (217) 328-8265.
