Fort Worth to consider art funding transfer

Fort Worth public art could get a $1 million boost if the City Council authorizes transferring that amount from city water and sewer resources.
 
The proposal is set for consideration at this week’s regular council meeting. Pre-council begins at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday Sept. 24, with the regular meeting starting at 10 a.m. at City Hall, 1000 Throckmorton St.
 
Not only would transferring $1,010,302 million from the city’s fiscal 2013 water and sewer fund benefit the city’s public art program, but up to $222,159 of that amount would reimburse the city’s general fund for installing a World Trade Center artifact at the Fort Worth Museum Science and History.
 
In August, the council authorized using up to $222,159 from the city’s general fund to help install the exhibit, a beam from the fallen New York City structure, at the museum.
 
Most of the $1 million transfer would help fund art program administration,
art collection maintenance and a public art project at the city's Public Safety
Training Center.
