Public Art Advisory Committee

Subcommittee of the Richmond Arts and Culture Commission (RACC) 

In 1999, the City of Richmond developed the City of Richmond Arts and Culture Commission Public Art Program Policies and Procedures, which established the Public Art Advisory Committee.

On May 18, 2021, Chapter 3.59 of the Richmond Municipal Code was amended to establish the Public Art Advisory Committee as a subcommittee of the Richmond Arts and Culture Commission. As a result of this amendment, all current Public Art Advisory Committee members will now be Arts and Culture Commissioners. Because PAAC has been established as a subcommittee of the RACC, all information regarding the PAAC can be found on the Arts and Culture Commission website:

Function: The Public Art Advisory Committee (PAAC) reviews and oversees public art project designs on City-commissioned pieces, and makes recommendations concerning their visual appeal, structural integrity, and safety to the RACC. They recommend public art policies and procedures, maintenance of existing artwork, review all proposed gifts or loans of artwork to the City, and serve as liaisons for the Public Art Program to Richmond's neighborhoods.  The PAAC is composed of a maximum of seven members of the Arts and Culture Commission who shall serve a maximum of two four-year terms.
