During Tuesday night's regular council meeting Stan Kreuter shared his idea regarding the Clymer Park trail extension project, that includes installing public art.
Kreuter suggested allowing artists to display and sell art rather than having the city purchase art.
“That would relieve the city that portion of the budget,” he said.
“Anything freed up is freed up,” he added.
As previously reported, Gulfport City Councilors unanimously agreed to move forward with The Clymer Park Art Walk Phase 1, which includes spending $100,000 on 8-foot-wide multi-use walkways, lighting and public art installations.
The goal of the project is to invest in public art and provide a safe route to the Waterfront District.
What do you think, Gulfport?
