The Fife Public Art Program was established in 2011 as a visible way to enhance the quality of life for our residents and support tourism and economic vitality.
The City of Fife recognizes that support for artists and arts organizations, development and stewardship of public art, arts education, and cultural development are public necessities and essential for the continuing growth and development of Fife’s citizens, economy, and quality of life.
The mission of the Fife Public Arts Commission (FPAC) is to identify and actively encourage the development and sustainability of the arts in the City by serving as the City’s primary resource in matters of public art and culture.
To the extent reasonably possible, the city shall seek representation on the commission from as many as possible of the following arts and professions:
- Architecture and landscape architecture
- Performing arts
- Tribal or city historian
as well as lay members who have an interest in the artistic, tribal, cultural development of the city.
The city shall attempt to have one member:
- from a recommendation from the Chamber of Commerce
- from a recommendation from the Puyallup Tribe
- to be a local school student interested in the arts
- to be an arts educator
However, any person, whether or not a Fife resident, may apply and be considered for membership on the commission. Members shall be selected without respect to political affiliations; however, a majority of the members shall at all times be either:
- Fife residents
- Working in Fife
- Own a business in Fife
Two of the positions on the commission shall be filled only by Fife residents; however, a vacancy in either of those two positions shall not affect whether or not the commission can have a quorum for purposes of transacting business.
