Program Summary

The Policy establishes that certain projects are eligible for support from the city for voluntary public art projects. Where the Capital City Development Corp. (“CCDC”) and private developers partner, parties will together identify a specific amount in the project budget for investment in artworks, cultural facilities, or for deposit in the appropriate cultural trust fund (which exists for each urban renewal district). Together they will determine the type of investment; how the artist will be selected; and if the investment is for artwork, ownership, or maintenance. For capital projects undertaken solely by private developers within the boundaries of urban renewal districts, the CCDC shall advocate investments in artworks, cultural facilities ,or the appropriate cultural trust fund. To the extent feasible, CCDC shall match funds. The CCDC shall notify the Boise City Department of Arts & History of potential development projects that provide the opportunity to serve as an advocate for public art with the developer.
