Art in San Marcos?

Anybody out there who might want to have one of their very own peices of art (sculpture) placed somewhere in San Marcos should know the city now has an Art in Public Places Board that actually has the money to fund purchases and/or commisions. Applications can be pilfered at the office of Parks & Recreation right across from the old Cock House on the corner of Hopkins & C.M. Allen.

Good luck.

"Art Board & stuff"

Hola gang,

Clarification here: Ain't no "art board", as in....a bulletin board...it's an actual City Government Board with real live board members. The application I referred to is this: City of San Marcos Arts Commision Funding Guidlines and Application.

The deal is you pick one of these things up at the Parks & Rec. building and fill it out with a proposal to make/install/perform, etc....to which the "Art Board" votes on either "yeah or ney."

In short, if you want to take a shot at sculpting/making art and want the city to consider paying for your project...this is the way to go about it.

FYI...I'm a sculptor. Still, who says I can really sculpt.

I say we build a fifteen foot statue of Alfred Hitchcock out of popcorn and watch him instantly covered with birds upon unveiling.

Cool

Well that's cool... how long have you been sculpting? I want to take up digital photography, i think that would be neat. But I also think SM is heading in the right direction w/ the art council. Definately need some voice from the artists, and need to share that w/ the citizens as well. This city just keeps growing and growing and growing and...

Art & growth

Yeah, I've been around San Marcos for many years and watched it grow enormously in the eighties, and now again. Been sculpting/arting for a little over 8 years now, always done some form of art though, always just for fun.

Take that digital art class, why not.
