City of Carmel Public Art Advisory Committee

Public art gives a city character and an identity that makes it appealing to residents and helps to further attract visitors. Public art plays an integral role in establishing the aesthetic of a community. Residents, therefore, should have input on where the public art that is purchased by the City is located. By Ordinance D-2409-18, the City of Carmel established a Public Art Advisory Committee in 2018. The Committee will consult with and advise the Mayor on where new public art should be located within the City. The recommendations of the Public Art Advisory Committee are advisory only, and the Mayor retains full and final authority to designate where public art will be located within the City.


Each Common Council member appointed one citizen from their district to serve on the Public Art Advisory Committee for a term of two (2) years.
