Public Art Taskforce takes shape
JACKSON HOLE, WYO – The Jackson Town Council appointed board members for an introductory organization called the Public Art Taskforce. The taskforce will help the town establish a systematic review of public art projects in Jackson. Under the direction of Public Art Coordinator Carrie Geraci, the panel of five residents and two town staffers will oversee any artwork that is associated with projects in town.
Chosen by the Council to serve on the taskforce were: Sam Ankeney, architect at CBL Architects; Jason Berning, project manager for GE Johnson; John Frechette, artist and owner of MADE boutique; Adam Duncan Harris, Ph.D., Curator of Art at the National Museum of Wildlife Art; and landscape architect Heidi Clendenin-Leeds.
The Town Council also appointed Tyler Sinclair, Planning Director, and Cathryn Brodie, Jackson Hole Public Art Board Member to the board.
“I’m excited to have the Public Art Taskforce up and running. The experience of its members is broad and will serve our community well in the public art review process,” Mayor Mark Barron said in a prepared statement.
The Public Art Taskforce will soon establish bylaws and begin work on the Annual Art In Public Spaces Plan. The meetings of the taskforce will be open to the public and meeting information will be posted on the Town of Jackson website.
