West Chester Borough Council created a Public Arts Commission

This month, Borough Council created a Public Arts Commission to support the reach and impact of public art, and advise on the merits of new art installation applications. There is a lot to applaud about public art! It’s free. It’s open to everyone. You can view it alone or in groups. It can tie us to our history – and our shared future. The Arts Commission could also help keep public art alive once it’s here – through signage, lighting and interpretive programs.

As part of the Public Arts Commission The Care Center Foundation has already commissioned Paul Santoleri to create a mural on the East wall of its building. The Foundation is fundraising to pay for the mural and undertake some much-needed building improvements.
