Funding for Public Art : LUSENET : Public Art : One Thread

I'de like to get more information on various public art funding. For example, funding strategies, policies proposed and guidelines that are necessary preceding public art programs. Help would be of great help in a proposal. Thanks.

In Toronto the Planning Department is drafting a proposal to require that any developer who wants to build an additional 20,000 square metres must give a certain amount of money (% of hard construction cost?) towards a fund that will be used for public art spending. alternatively, the developer may choose to commission their own public art to drape their development. Try contacting Jane Purdue of the Public Art Committee, City of Toronto.
