The City of Kingston’s Department of Arts and Cultural Affairs has contracted with McGregor Consulting to create a Municipal Public Art Policy, which will apply to all forms of art on city property and will provide guidelines for the City when presenting or commissioning new work in the future. This policy focuses on public art on city property and does not address public art on private property.

McGregor Consulting has been contracted to create a Municipal Public Art Policy that will:

  • provide collection management guidelines for existing works of art owned by the City and currently displayed in municipally owned spaces and municipal buildings
  • provide guidelines for the acquiring, commissioning of public works of art, and for sponsoring temporary and/or permanent art forms on City property;
  • offer ways for community to participate, promoting public art projects and activities while protecting the rights of artists
  • develop a plan for implementing the Municipal public art policy

Jennifer McGregor of McGregor Consulting is an Arts Planner with over 40 years of expertise in the areas of art, public engagement, and placement. She was the first director of New York City’s Percent for Art Program where she wrote the operating guidelines and initiated the first 60 projects.

The process will include public meetings to share the final draft before the Municipal Public Art Policy is approved by the Common Council.
