Center of Wonder promotes "percent for art" program in Jackson

This news brief appeared in Planet Jackson Hole:

The Center of Wonder, a valley group that supports community art installations, has announced it will push for new commercial and municipal construction to set aside one percent of a project’s budget for public art.

The group said it will lobby local lawmakers to incorporate a public art exaction into Land Development Regulations to coincide with the Comprehensive Plan Update.

The Center of Wonder was responsible for the former Art Space site on Broadway, the wildlife cutout series that appeared along Hwy. 22 during the winter, and the Snowtorium, a giant “snow doughnut” outfitted with a motion-activated sound bench that melted away in July.
