Body

An application for a temporary exhibition of a single sculpture by Carlos Albert was received by the City from the property owners of 2655 Le Jeune Road for a thirteen-month period from the end of November 2019 through December 2020.

The Arts Advisory Panel voted unanimously (6-0) to recommend approval of a temporary public exhibition of an artwork by Carlos Albert to the Cultural Development Board at their meeting on May 29, 2019. 

 

The Cultural Development Board voted (5-1) to recommend approval of a temporary public exhibition of an artwork by Carlos Albert to the City Commission at their meeting on June 4, 2019.
