Projects based around the DNC can promote the city. There has been interest for these projects from artists and the downtown business improvement district. Projects may range from banners, line entertainment, performances, and advice tents. Projects have to be nonpartisan and publically accessible. Perhaps a big artist piece, like a monument, can be made as a main DNC attraction. Members discussed concerns over adherence to DNC security and parameters, opportunities for communities not associated with the DNC, and adherence to nonpartisanship. Chair Morris further commented. Focusing on projects for the DNC can help the arts board make a bigger impact, raise its profile, and maximize exposure. Another interest is to invite Arielle Julia Brown, a monument artist who has done work on African American history and slavery, to come talk about monuments.
