The Commission may solicit gifts and bequests of public art or funds to benefit the Ashland Public Art Collection. The Council shall decide whether to accept all such gifts of art work on behalf of the City and the Ashland Public Art Collection on its own motion or upon a recommendation by the Commission based on its own evaluation, or by recommendation of the Commission after the Selection Panel has evaluated the artwork using the guidelines in AMC 2.29.130 and the total cost over the life of the artwork.
All art works or funds shall be administered by the City in accordance with its terms. Funds donated to the Commission shall be placed in a special account to be used exclusively for the purposes of the Commission or as designated by the donor. Funds in this account may only be expended after they have been properly budgeted or approved by the City. (Ord. 3003, added, 02/18/2010)
