We are pleased to announce that the Public Arts Initiative of Egg Harbor, Wisconsin (formally the Public Art Committee) is now the Village of Egg Harbor’s independent public art advisory board.
The mission of the Public Arts Initiative (PAI) of Egg Harbor is to develop, promote and expand the public art experience in the Village of Egg Harbor. We know the positive impact the arts have on cultural tourism and economic development for our community. It is our goal to create and maintain the highest quality public art program and to be recognized locally, regionally and nationally, further enhancing the extraordinary reputation of the Village of Egg Harbor, Wisconsin. We will also sponsor workshops and special events, throughout the year, to promote education, participation and the enjoyment of the arts in our community.
It will truly take a village to accomplish all of this! To lead us in the right direction, we have eight exceptional PAI board members – artists, educators, business owners and marketing and advertising specialists – that bring years of experience to the table. Our board members are Kathleen Mand Beck, Beverly Prohl, Andy Seefeldt, Dan Cross, and Chris Roedl.
The Egg Harbor Village Administrator, Mr. Ryan Heise, and Deputy Administrator, Megan Vandermause will continue to work with PAI as advisors.
As a non-profit public arts organization in Egg Harbor, our yearly funding will come from a variety of sources. To get us off the ground in our first few years, we will be applying for funding from the Village of Egg Harbor. We will also ask for your help, through private and public donations, to support our mission of quality public art in Egg Harbor, Wisconsin. The PAI of Egg Harbor is a 501 (c) 3 organization.
We are excited about the continuation of Public Art in Egg Harbor and we look forward to your support and participation!
