public art oversight committee

All projects funded by the City of Memphis' Percent-for-art program require approval from project specific selection committees and the Public Art Oversight Committee or PAOC. PAOC is a seven member committee that reviews all Percent-for-art projects, meeting on the second Wednesday of every month at 1 pm at UAC. Similar to selection committees, PAOC is comprised of representatives from the broader Memphis community, visual artists or arts professionals, an architect and a UAC board member.Monthly PAOC meetings and selection committee meetings are open to the public.

The current committee includes Coriana Close (artist and professor at University of Memphis, Beverly Perkins (MLG&W), Adrienne Pakis-Gillon, Ellen Daugherty (Memphis College of Art), Lisa Law (LRK), Patricia Lee Daigle (Director of The Martha & Robert Fogelman Galleries of Contemporary Art and visiting assistant professor at University of Memphi ), and Mary Haizlip (Haizlip Studios and UAC board member).
