Roswell renews agreement with Arts Fund

The Roswell City Council has renewed its agreement with the Roswell Arts Fund that will have the nonprofit organize the fourth year of the ArtAround Roswell Sculpture Tour in 2019, and work with the city on other initiatives.

“The city designates and authorizes Roswell Arts Fund to promote and advocate for the arts on behalf of the city, primarily through the specific initiatives in ‘Imagine Roswell Arts and Culture 2030 Plan’ and ‘Public Arts Master Plan,’” an agenda report to the council says.

Activities beside the sculpture exhibition include a “Biannual Artist at the Table Meeting,” with city department cooperation; Phase III of a Performance Space Feasibility Study; and an Artistic Bicycle Rack Project, raising $15,000 and coordinating site selection, artist/design selection and installation, according to the memorandum of understanding approved by the council.

The city has allocated the Arts Fund $290,000 for its arts initiatives. The agreement runs through June 30, 2019, and automatically renews for a new one-year term year-to-year.
