NCDC Public Art
The Metro Nashville Arts Council (MNAC) partnered with the Nashville Civic Design Center (NCDC) to identify potential sites throughout Davidson County for consideration for future public arts projects through the 1% for Public Art Fund. The report identifies and articulates the logic behind these suggested sites. In addition to potential sites this report includes a listing of other successful public art projects and typologies to serve as catalysts for each community’s selection process.
Priorities for site selection are first taken from each sub-district’s community plan, including: visual, urban design, and planning frameworks. The overall patterns of development, each community’s visual character and activities, and current plans for public infrastructure improvement were also considered. Additionally, items that received a general consensus during The Plan of Nashville charrettes were addressed and vetted as part of the site suggestion process, and the parks and recreation master plan document was consulted. The sites suggested herein aspire to serve a whole cross section of the public, in places rural, suburban and urban. Public access and general site distribution across the county were considered in the composition of these suggestions.
