Public Arts Committee Invites Public to Meet Artist Finalists

The City of Lincoln City Public Arts Committee would like to invite the residents, artists and interested parties of Lincoln City to a Public Forum on February 28, 2020 from 5-7pm at City Hall (801 SW HWY 101). This forum will showcase the five finalists for the Public Arts Committee’s Call for Artists. These five finalists will each give a presentation on past work and share their visions for a large scale art installation to be built as part of the renovation of the Lincoln City Cultural Center’s plaza.

As part of the Public Art Master Plan approved by City Council, the Public Arts Committee was given the task of recommending an artist to build a large scale art installation in Lincoln City. The Committee issued an RFQ Call For Artists and received multiple proposals. They narrowed the list to five finalists, Pete Beeman, Hilary Pfiefer, Heidi Erickson, Bill and Karma Simmons, and Adrienne Peck from Rohleder Borges. These five talented artists will each have an opportunity to share photos of previous art installations and talk about their vision for this project. They will then be available to answer questions from the public. Comment cards will be available for the public to fill out and light refreshments will be provided.

The Public Arts Committee hopes many people come to this forum as this installation will be a permanent addition to Lincoln City and wants as much input from the public as possible to aid in their recommendation. After the forum and interviews, the Committee will narrow the list to one recommendation which they will present to City Council for approval.

Urban Renewal Area Plan Public Input Forums Scheduled

As you may be aware, in April 2019 Lincoln City City Council decided to move ahead with creating an Urban Renewal Plan for the Roads End/Villages area. Creating a Plan takes about a year and involves community input opportunities.

We will be hosting the first of two public forums on Tuesday, January 7th at Ace’s Bar and Grill. The event will begin at 5:30 PM. We will be discussing the proposed urban renewal boundary and a list of potential capital projects to be completed in the area over a 25 year time horizon. The event is open to all interested community members and stakeholders and we are very interested in hearing your feedback!

The second public forum will be held Tuesday, February 18th at the Lincoln City Cultural Center at 5:30 PM.

We will also be sending out an online survey for folks that are unable to attend the public forums.

Should you have questions about the new Urban Renewal Area Plan and how you can provide your feedback, please do not hesitate to ask. For more information; call, email, or stop by the office:
