Minneapolis releases art update
The Minneapolis Arts and Culture Coordinating Committee has released a 2006 art progress report. The report is based on the City’s Plan for Arts and Culture, a 10-year strategic plan that defines the role of the City in supporting arts and culture, and defines the role of arts and culture in accomplishing the City’s broader goals.
The Minneapolis City Council and Mayor adopted the Plan for Arts and Culture in 2005. The Coordinating Committee was established to oversee plan implementation. The Committee met five times in 2006 and worked to implement a variety of the plan’s recommendations including: securing arts funding, promoting the arts, encouraging art collaborations and partnerships, convening public art forums, ensuring the inclusion of arts in comprehensive planning, mapping artistic activity in the city, establishing arts programs, and collecting data to study how the arts foster economic development and contribute to quality of life.
