City of Kingston officials have released a draft policy on protocol for publicly displayed works of art.

Kingston Mayor Steve Noble, the city’s Department of Art & Cultural Affairs, and the Kingston Arts Commission announced on Tuesday the ‘Art in Public’ policy draft. The citywide policy establishes protocol and procedure for publicly displayed works of art in Kingston. A community presentation and workshop to introduce the policy and answer any questions will be held May 21 at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall. After addressing feedback and concerns from the public, the policy will be presented to the Common Council for adoption into the City Code. Once the policy is in place, a Community Art Panel will be formed and an application process will be established for art in public.
