Announced in September 2017, the Mayoral Advisory Commission on City Art, Monuments and Markers is a group that will advise the Mayor on issues surrounding public art and historic monuments and markers on City-owned property. The Commission is co-chaired by the President of the Ford Foundation, Darren Walker, and the Commissioner of Cultural Affairs, Tom Finkelpearl. Over a period of 90 days, the Commission will develop guidelines on how the City should address monuments seen as oppressive and inconsistent with the values of New York City.
To help ensure our City’s public spaces remain open and inclusive, take our survey online at:
Your input is extremely important for ensuring our city’s public spaces remain open and inclusive and will inform the Commission’s advisory recommendations. Please share your thoughts about the City’s public monuments and markers and share this link with other New Yorkers, so they can do the same.
We are committed to reviewing all written comments received, but the City is under no obligation to pursue any ideas, proposals, or recommendations submitted here. Please note that your submission may be provided to Commission members, published online, and/or subject to public disclosure by the City.
The survey form will remain open until 11:59 PM on November 26, 2017.
