Surprise Public Arts Maps to get add-on

Arts Commission finds way to reuse unused maps

Posted

Because the COVID-19 pandemic canceled arts events for most of the year in Surprise, the city’s Arts and Cultural Advisory Commission was left with a glut of public arts maps it normally hands out throughout the year.

But commissioners think they’ve found a solution to supplement the maps in order to use them next year when events resume.

Danielle Osborne, a management analyst in the City Manager’s Office, said fold-out pamphlets will be glued to the back of the map to include updates to the upcoming event calendar.

In recent years, the commission has produced popular pocket-sized Public Art Maps for locals and tourists to find interesting public art throughout Surprise.

The maps have been distributed to local venues and organizations.

The commission voted to spend no more than $100 of its $10,000 printing budget on the supplemental solution.

A virtual public art tour can be found at surpriseaz.gov/files/maps/arts.
