The Athens Cultural Affairs Commission (ACAC) was established to advise the Athens-Clarke County Unified Government on cultural affairs and aesthetic development of the built environment in accordance with provisions of planning, programming, procurement, installation, operation, and maintenance of public art projects and artworks.
The Athens Cultural Affairs Commission is seeking community members to participate in upcoming public art selection panels. Selection panels review, evaluate, and select from submitted proposals for Athens-Clarke County-funded public art commissions. Each panel typically meets once to select art for a specific project. Meetings usually take place on a weekday at 6:00 p.m. and last approximately two hours.
To promote creative place-making in our community, the ACAC invites local organizations, groups, and artists to apply for an Arts in Community Award (AICA) to support performance-based project, event, or activity in Athens-Clarke County that contributes to the vitality, unique identity, and livability of the Athens community.
