Have an opinion on Claremont's public art? Share it.
For years, Claremont has found pride in its works of public art, from the John Fisher sculpture at Shelton Park to the red-and-white steel display by Christina Cassaro on the southeast corner of Indian Hill and Harrison.
The city is looking to add to its colorful works of art, and is seeking input from the public.
Local officials and a hired consultant are in the process of creating a Public Art Master Plan for the city of Claremont. Through the plan, the city seeks to create a "unified community vision"in regards to public art, and create a framework for the selection and placement of future art displays throughout the community.
The consultant is looking for advice from the public as she embarks on creating the master plan. She will hold a public meeting this Wednesday, March 20, at 6:30 p.m. and welcomes input from the community. The meeting will take place in the Padua Room of the Alexander Hughes Community Center. Comments and questions may also be submitted by e-mail to Melissa Vollaro, community and human services manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 399-5490.
