Public art is an important part of creating a high quality of life in Richardson. Public art can inspire creative growth and helps create civic connections through the community.
The goal of public art in Richardson is to reinforce the City’s character, express the identity of Richardson’s residential neighborhoods and business districts and to engage people and to foster creative collaborations throughout the city. The City of Richardson welcomes support from our citizens, businesses and foundations in supporting these public art goals.
Donations and sponsorship are suggested in the following areas:
Community Art $200,000 or more
Work with the City of Richardson to commission two to four public art pieces at a community facility or location such as the Richardson Public Library, Galatyn Urban Center or within the parks system that would allow for integration of outdoor public art piece(s) within key locations in the community.
City Hall Art $200,000 to $500,000
Work with the city to commission a public art piece to replace existing art hanging at each end of City Hall.
Animal Shelter Art $50,000 to $100,000
Commission a public art piece to be placed in front of the Animal Shelter to attract attention to the facility and encourage adoptions.
There are opportunities for each of these gifts to be acknowledged by a plaque or related signage.
