  1. Andrew Ewasko 1% of the budget allocated to all new building projects must go to funding public art.

  2. Art in front of a Police Station? That makes no sense. How about honoring some local hero’s, What about the very first Police Commissioner, to give this City a sense of History. I’m all for Art displays throughout the City but whomever is making these decisions needs to be fired.
