The Sandy Arts Commission advises the City Council in the creation, development, and implementation of public art activities and programming to enrich the visual and aesthetic environment of the community. Public art builds up the community by celebrating local identity, enhancing livability of the community, and providing a vehicle for economic development. With the establishment of an arts commission, the City of Sandy can begin the process of making strategic decisions about public art installations and events in the community, with residents having an opportunity to participate in the selection process.
Members shall be appointed upon the basis of demonstrated interest in, and knowledge and support of the arts. The City of Sandy encourages individuals from diverse backgrounds to apply. This includes residents, business owners, and/or individuals who are employed in the community. The Commission's bylaws can be found here.
If you have a background in the arts and would like to apply to become a Sandy Arts Commissioner, please the Commission Chair, Becky Hawley (email@example.com), or the Staff Liaison, Tyler Deems (firstname.lastname@example.org).
