While the City of Frisco respects the freedom of expression in visual arts, the City reserves the right to remove or relocate artwork at its sole discretion.
Artwork on display at the George A. Purefoy Municipal Center may be for sale by the organization or artists loaning the artwork provided that any artwork sold remains on display until the conclusion of the exhibition. However, early removal may be approved by the public art manager with prior written consent. The organization or artist lending artwork for an exhibition must provide a suitable replacement, subject to the public art manager’s approval, for artwork removed from an exhibition before its conclusion.
The artist is responsible for all aspects of a sale transaction of artwork on display. The City shall provide contact information and labels for artworks. The City of Frisco does not receive a commission on, or compensation from, the sale of artwork exhibited.
PURCHASE FOR PERMANENT COLLECTION
It is the intent of the City of Frisco to create a permanent art collection of Frisco-themed artworks. Artwork submitted to the Art in the Atrium show may be considered for purchase into the City of Frisco’s permanent collection. If the city chooses to select an artwork for purchase from the Art in the Atrium show, a contract will be negotiated between the artist and the city. It is the city's expectation to sell limited edition, signed reproductions of the artwork to fund future purchases for the city collection.
The mission of the City of Frisco Public Art Program is to promote cultural, aesthetic and economic vitality in Frisco by integrating the work of artists into public places, civic infrastructure and private development. In keeping with that mission, the Frisco Public Art Board initiated Art in the Atrium series at the George A. Purefoy Municipal Center. The facility's open atrium design and tall limestone walls has proven to be an exceptional venue to showcase the artistic excellence of our local and regional artists.
