The FRANK Gallery and the Chapel Hill Public Arts Commission held the first of its three public forum meetings on Tuesday. For the Chapel Hill 2020 Comprehensive Plan, the town hopes to gain public insight on the arts scene.
Dan Cefalo, the chairperson of the Chapel Hill Public Art Commission, said he believes these events will help foster creative thinking and bring the community’s needs up front.
“We have been working on an arts plan that goes hand in hand with the town’s 2020 plan, and our arts plan can not be complete without public input,” said Cefalo. “So we have put together three of these events to just try and see what we can get from the public’s input, and if they can help us give more information and tell us what they want to see out of our arts plan.”

Chapel Hill residents and other art lovers are encouraged to attend and voice their ideas for the future Chapel Hill arts scene.
The Chapel Hill Public Art Commission is currently involved in providing public art, studio arts, performing arts programs, arts festivals and other events, like the fourth of July fireworks at Kenan, in Chapel Hill.
Emily Kass, who serves on the commission as the vice chairperson, said with the commission’s growing role they have more to offer to a large audience.
