DISCUSSION:

On August 13, 2018, the Fort Worth Art Commission recommended the City of Fort Worth Public Art Annual Work Plan (Capital Improvement Plan) for Fiscal Year 2019, which was presented to City Council on October 16, 2018. An M&C requesting City Council authorization of the Professional Management Services Agreement renewal with the Arts Council of Fort Worth & Tarrant County, Inc., (Arts Council) to manage the Fort Worth Public Art Program for Fiscal Year 2019 will be on November 6, 2018 agenda. The City of Fort Worth Public Art Annual Work Plan for Fiscal Year 2019, as adopted by City Council, will comprise the Arts Council's scope of work.

The Annual Work Plan includes projects in progress and new public art projects previously approved by City Council in funding source-specific public art plans, as follows:

• Public Art Plan for the 2004 Bond Program (M&C G-14801, May 17, 2005)
• Public Art Plan for the Water Fund* (M&C G-15185, May 9, 2006)
• Public Art Plan for the 2007 Critical Capital Needs (M&C G-17095, October 26, 2010)
• Public Art Plan for the 2008 Bond Program (M&C G-17094, October 26, 2010)
• Public Art Plan for the 2014 Bond Program (M&C G-18339, October 21, 2014)
• Public Art Plan for the 2018 Bond Program (M&C G-19401, October 16, 2018)

*The FY 2018 Annual Work Plan includes Collection Management allocations from the Water & Sewer Fund for cash-funded capital projects and was reflected in the FY 2019 City Budget for the Planning & Development Department.

Public art projects follow the guidelines contained in the City Council-adopted Fort Worth Public Art Master Plan Update (M&C G-19140, October 17, 2017). Individual City Council members are directly involved with project planning, artist selection, and design review for public art projects in their districts. However, City Council, as a body, authorizes all Artwork Commission Contracts, through separate M&Cs.

Capital outlay for the public art program is usually associated with Collection Management (i.e., plaques, maintenance, conservation, etc.) as listed in the Annual Work Plan. Section 2 of the ordinance addresses appropriations to designated funds for identified capital outlay.

The action in this M&C is not included in the FY2019-2023 Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) and will amend FY2019 of the CIP.

These projects are located throughout ALL COUNCIL DISTRICTS.

This M&C does not request approval of a contract with a business entity.
 
FISCAL INFORMATION/CERTIFICATION:

The Director of Finance certifies that upon approval of the above recommendations and adoption of the attached appropriation ordinance, funds will be available in the Fiscal Year 2019 Capital Improvement Plans, as appropriated in the designated capital projects and associated funds for the identified purposes.  Prior to an expenditure being incurred, the Public Arts Council and the Planning and Development Department have the responsibility to validate the availability of funds.
