about the plan

We are honored to have Gail M. Goldman & Associates on board to facilitate the public art strategic planning process through the end of the year. Over the course of the next seven months, we will engage Chattanooga’s diverse, creative community and not only identify sites, opportunities and goals for public artworks, but also detail policy, operational and funding strategies that include achievable action strategies that align with Chattanooga’s unique resources and capabilities. At the end of the process, the consultant team will deliver a 5 - 10 year strategic plan for the City of Chattanooga's public art program.
