Q: Anyone know the names of the members of the art committee? When will the instillations begin at Clymer park? – Nancy Kelley, via Facebook
A: Gulfport City Council appointed Owen Pach, Bryan Hilbert, Andrea Royce, Lynn Orns and Amy Oatley to the committee. The group started meeting with Gulfport city staff monthly last March and finished meeting in August. Five artists submitted 21 designs. Artists have until the end of July to complete the installations.
The selected artists – and also the only artists who submitted proposals – are Tom Pitzen, Susanne Mays, Owen Pach, Frank Strunk III, and Jonathan Schork.
