Public Art Committee Formed in Apex

25074760_1561438543922655_6858713796570998575_oApex now has a town-supported committee focused on public art. The Apex Public Arts Committee, or APAC, consists of a group of volunteers that meet monthly to discuss potential public arts projects. Their mission is to both generate project ideas and support their implementation by allocating financial resources. Some of their volunteers are artists, while others simply show a passion for filling the small town of Apex with more public art.

The committee is fairly new, receiving approval by the Town Council in November of 2017. Tom Colwell, an APAC member and one of the people behind its formation, explains “We are designing our Public Art program to be a reflection of the tremendous energy and pride that Apex residents have for their town, to stimulate creative thinking and to build upon the town’s unique culture. Currently we are putting the building blocks of a program in place by working with the town planning department on a master plan, reaching out to businesses in the community for partnership opportunities, learning from other municipalities and connecting with our residents. So far the support and encouragement has been terrific and we are excited about the possibilities.”

APAC is looking for support!  If you want to get involved with the program, are interested in sponsoring artwork or have creative ideas to share, get in touch. Of course, APAC is also looking for financial support for this work, so individual and business who want to see more public art in Apex, they would love to hear from you!
