Glendale arts and culture officials agreed to discuss spending $30,000 Thursday on projects currently outside their scope of work, such as video exhibits and projections in public spaces as well as a photography street exhibit.
The move marked another instance where the Arts & Culture Commission showed a willingness to entertain unique proposals. The commission, which has roughly $1.4 million in funding from development fees, recently supported murals on utility boxes and arts in the windows of vacant storefronts.
“It’s very exciting stuff,” said Annette Vartanian, a program supervisor for the city's Library, Arts & Culture Department.
The suggestions were not guaranteed to come to fruition, as they were just ideas being considered, Vartanian said. Staff is set to explore the proposals and provide options for moving forward at a commission meeting planned for next month.
