The City of Knoxville Public Arts Committee was created in September 2008. The committee was created due to the results of the Public Arts Task Force and their recommendations to the Mayor. The purpose of the committee is "to enhance the reputation of the community, contribute to the civic environment, and enrich the lives of citizens and visitors through the involvement of professional artists to integrate public artwork throughout the City."

The Committee shall be broadly representative of Knoxville citizens and community leaders with an interest in the arts, such as: artists, arts organization representatives, arts educators and design professionals (registered architects, interior designers, and professional engineers).
Appointment of Committee Members
The committee consists of no less than 9 members and no more than 15 members. All members are appointed by the Mayor. All members serve three-year terms and must be confirmed by City Council. No member shall serve more than two consecutive terms.
Meeting Schedule
The Public Arts Committee meets on the first Thursday of each month at 1:30 p.m. in the Board Room of the Knoxville Museum of Art located at 1050 World's Fair Park Drive.
