Public Arts Advisory Commission


The Clive Public Arts Advisory Commission acts in an advisory capacity to the City Council on matters pertaining to visual public art within the city. The Commission develops a general policy for inclusion and approval of visual art in public places and projects as well as informs and educates the public about the importance and need for visual arts integration within public spaces, including parks, green space, and city facilities.


The Public Arts Advisory Commission meets bi-monthly (even months), as needed, or on call of the Chairperson if a special meeting is necessary. The meetings are held in the Northwest Conference Room at City Hall, 1900 NW 114th Street and are open to the public. Meeting agendas are posted one week prior to the meeting.

The seven board members each serve three year terms. Members are appointed by the Mayor, with the approval of the City Council.
