ADJOURNMENT 1 CITY OF BOULDER BOULDER, COLORADO BOARDS AND COMMISSIONS MEETING MINUTES Name of Board/ Commission: Boulder Arts Commission Date of Meeting: September 15, 2021 Contact information preparing summary: Celia Seaton Commission members present: Kathleen McCormick, Devin Hughes, Georgia Schmid, Eboni Freeman, Maria Cole, Caroline Kert Commission members absent: Bruce Borowsky Library staff present: Matt Chasansky, Office of Arts & Culture Manager Lauren Click, Coordinator, Grants Mandy Vink, Coordinator, Public Art David Farnan, Director Celia Seaton, Administrative Specialist City staff present: None Members of the public present: Mary Wohl Haan, Marda Kirn, Kari Palzzari, Elaine Schnabel, Nick Forster, Patricia Bruck Type of Meeting: Regular|Remote Agenda Item 1: Call to order and approval of agenda [0:02:51 Audio min.] The meeting was called to order. McCormick provided an introductory orientation around the virtual procedure, as this meeting was held through Zoom videoconference. She asked the group for any other addendums to the agenda. Though not an agenda shift, Chasansky highlighted continued staff discussions with the City’s Racial Equity Guiding Coalition as work progresses on the commission’s statement on cultural equity. More conversation on the coalition’s instrument will occur at a future meeting. There was a nod of approval for the agenda as presented. Agenda Item 2: Review of Minutes [0:04:13 Audio min.] Item 2A, Approval/Review of August 2021 Meeting Minutes McCormick asked the commission for changes or addendums regarding these minutes. Freeman moved to approve the minutes, Kert seconded, and the motion was unanimously approved. Agenda Item 3: Public Participation [0:04:45 Audio min.] Forster announced that eTown Hall will be hosting a Boulder city council candidate forum. Create Boulder and Boulder County Arts Alliance partnered to showcase this panel specifically concerning arts and culture issues. Intended goals include educating city council candidates and the opportunity to secure their arts-friendly statements, as well as a chance for community participation in local government. Livestreaming will be made available. Kirn spoke about EcoArts’s recent work around climate change; she hopes that this pressing global issue will be included on the commission’s retreat agenda. She emphasized the need for collaboration to bring together various finding resources along with the various groups within the city. Kirn noted that Boulder has the highest density of climate change scientists globally. This prime space “needs the arts to mobilize it.” She welcomed commissioners to contact her to to engage in this effort. Palazzari (Studio Arts) welcomed the group to the upcoming fundraiser Chili Bowl Festival. She noted that the event has been scaled back this year to “safely spread out the fun.” Art demonstrations will occur all weekend along with the Pottery Lab’s fall pottery sale. Leah Woods: I am here to be available for questions and would like to speak to those questions pertaining to the Block 1750 2021 Community Project Grant request for change. 2 Agenda Item 4: Public Art [0.14.04 Audio min.] A. 2022 Public Art Implementation Plan Updates, Chapters 2 and 3 – Vink continued to present on significant changes and new projects (see handouts.) Alpine Balsam is “still tracking,” but a year behind in its schedule. For the Alpine Balsam area plan and hospital deconstruction, as well as future intended use, please see https://bouldercolorado.gov/projects/alpine-balsam-implementation. The George Reynolds branch library renovation refresh will involve a new mural in the children’s area, with an artist chosen from the mural roster. Cole asked whether the of artists for roster are Boulder-based. Vink explained that the artists are located anywhere from Colorado Springs up to Laramie. The parameters are intentionally kept as broad and functional as possible. Cole also wondered whether a donated piece comes with donated maintenance funds. Vink explained that the donor is encouraged to donate 10% to assist in covering the maintenance needs. In response to Kert’s inquiry, Vink clarified that the mural roster is updated with new additions ever year, but an entire update occurs every other year. Regarding the capital improvement projects like the 30th and Colorado Underpass Project, McCormick wondered whether restriction of Transportation’s budget would then cause the art component to become value engineered. Vink explained that because this project was an outlier to the typical process, it may well be value engineered if need be. Transportation is working with Vink to try to bring funds where they need to be for the art element. Cole: is it possible to make accessible signage a permanent requirement? Vink explained that this signage tends to fall on the burden of the artist as a portion of project cost. Freeman wondered about the “hold” on the Public Art Experiments. Vink explained that this hold was instated in 2018 because Public Art Experiments was initiated with a one-time funding. It remains as a hold because it was so successful; staff is still waiting to hear on updates to the budget, as this could become a 2022 contender. https://boulderarts.org/public-art/temporary/ Agenda Item 5: Grant Program [0.46.00 Audio min.] A. Patricia D Bruck, 3rd Extension, Community Project Grants, Awarded March 21, 2018, River Beginning: A Journey From the Edge, $4,000. In response to Kert’s question, Bruck explained that she is unsure of the reasons behind the past two extensions. Click recalled that the delay was impacted by COVID-19 considerations, along with the death of the title subject. McCormick would like to approve the grant extension. She cited the understandable conditions that caused the delay and is excited to see the final product. Kert agreed. Freeman wondered if it was possible to share the progress as it currently stands. Bruck has six hours of “talking head” style footage – she plans to upload some content online to be relayed by Click to commission. She must now create an alternative “b-roll” instead of focusing on her main character River. Cole feels supportive of artists through these challenges and felt struck by the tenacity of artists continuing to adapt despite extenuating circumstances. Cole moved that the extension request from Patricia Bruck be approved. Hughes seconded. All were in favor, and the motion passed unanimously. B. Block 1750, request to change the nature of the 2021 Community Project Grant previously awarded for Block Party 2021, $10,000. Click explained that commissioners have the options to a) approve the change in the program request, b) not approve the change in the program request and request return of the funds already received by Block 1750, or c) postpone approval of the change in program request pending the answers to specific questions. Interim Director Woods was present to answer questions. Cole stated her preference to approve the change in the program request. Kert agreed, appreciating the strength needed to “right a ship” of a project’s progression. In response to Kert’s inquiry, Woods explained that the proposed costs just cover the in-house studio space, Avalon costs would be additional if needed. Schmid has not had good experiences in her interactions with Block 1750; she doesn’t approve supporting it through the allocation of city dollars. She cited positions changing hands, inconsistencies with class schedules, and unprofessionalism. Schmid does not approve this change and finds the continual funding for Block 1750 concerning. Freeman 3 appreciates the ingenuity involved in creating a new program. Freeman is excited about the project and would like to see the project realized but feels it should be entered under a new grant review and approval process. Cole inquired whether questions might be posed whose responses might alleviate Schmid’s concerns. Schmid responded that, in her 7 years of experience, she has observed schedules/instructors not aligning with the actual class events, as well as issues of drugs and alcohol that were not well-addressed by the on-site leadership – “lives have been lost” due to the situation. Schmid doesn’t see this studio as mature enough to be awarded the responsibility of taxpayer monies. Kert suggested an update on policies and leadership from Woods which may address Schmid’s concerns. Woods assumed her role in March 2021; she acknowledged the changes within Block 1750 and agreed with Schmid’s estimation of the turn-over. While volunteer-run for many years, she sees a shift to more professional organization with four new people in leadership. Cole suggested a postponement to allow Block 1750 leadership time to provide responses on how they are currently defining a safe space and their commitment to the teachers that are included in this program proposal. While respecting Schmid’s comments and perspective, Freeman would like to highlight that grant funding usually focuses on the project, and not on management issues. Schmid clarified that she is not “disgruntled,” she has seen this organization continually be awarded grant money, yet not handle it appropriately. McCormick stated that she has seen a good track record of edgy and youth-oriented project, however she is concerned with precedent of changing a project so far into the timeline. Hughes wondered whether challenges of the organization caused the changes to the project (an annual block party). Woods: community feedback signaled a “dissonance” which led to structural change. The precedent argument is a fair and ethical concern that she appreciates. Kert was curious as to the consideration to postpone event. Woods explained the desire to reimagine an event with the present leadership which will serve the same need of bringing together the contemporary local dance community. Cole made a motion to postpone approval of the change in program request pending the answers to specific questions (further expanding on the statement in letter re: “safe space,” the commitment to teachers outlined in proposal, and the similarities to the previously funded program). Kert seconded. All approved, except for Schmid and Freeman who voted against this motion. This item will be brought back in October’s meeting for further consideration. C. Reports for Approval 1. Colorado Conservatory for the Jazz Arts, SheBop Weekend Workshop, $3,000 follow up responses – commission provided a nod of approval for the responses. 2. Angie Eng, Earth Wear, $5,000 – Cole commented that she appreciated the feedback. Freeman agreed with Cole. She would like to see the qualitative data evidenced through key quotes from the questionnaires. Kert would also like to review the questionnaires, and particularly appreciated the large amount of volunteer assistance. McCormick was impressed by the report, but concerned by the potential overextension of Eng’s efforts, timewise. Click will relay feedback and inquiry to Eng. Kert made a motion to approve the grant report and follow up with the questions. Freeman seconded, and the motion was unanimously approved. D. 2022 Grant Cycle Blueprint: Recommended Changes (see handouts.) – Click reviewed staff-recommended changes to the 2022 Grants Program. Topics include grant program financial structure, process improvements, and the 2022 Grant Program schedule. The staff recommended financial structure includes the purchase of software and equipment to allow virtual programming and equipment as well as remote software. Chasansky noted that the levels of funding for General Operating Support grants (GOS) have changed, but they have not risen adequately since establishment in 2016 to reflect inflation. He advised that the group examine the mix of funding. The Community Cultural Plan calls for commission to focus funding on the resiliency of 4 nonprofits to operate business. GOS funding provides best sustainability for organizations and best return on investment. He imagined concentrating on GOS and considering a reduction of the other categories (e.g., projects) for nonprofits. Chasansky is proposing this topic for discussion, not as a staff recommendation. McCormick is not in favor of eliminating many categories. Smaller grants like the community project grants and art education grants can provide new opportunities for a project or organization to “shine.” The group discussed potential process improvements. Regarding eligibility around contractual age, staff recommended that all applicants must be of legal contractual age as defined by the state of Colorado (18 years). “We encourage those younger than 18 years of age to engage with a fellow artist or organization in order to apply. Contact the Office with questions.” Freeman approved of this language. Staff also recommended City of Boulder city limits remain as currently described. Process improvements re: GOS were reviewed. For the 2022 GOS application, what impacts of COVID-19 should be considered in elements of criteria and selection? Staff recommended asking for 2019 and 2020 financials and use the higher budget number to determine grant category. Staff do not recommend including the question concerning whether organizations can accept less than the full request for funding. Process improvements: do not seek panelists to join the grant process. Commission discussed whether it was still interested in adopting a rule that Commissioners cannot miss more than one grant program review now that they are a body of seven as opposed to five. Commission agreed to table this topic until a future meeting to gather Borowsky’s input. Process improvements regarding engagement and publicizing the grant program. Next year will see a focus on Government Alliance on Racial Equity (GARE) group connections, print advertising, and utilizing the city’s Community Connector contacts. Palazzari agreed that the GOS grants allow an organization the most flexibility in handling awarded funds. The two groups of organizations in the middle “stair” levels still feel a financial squeeze and thus often apply for project grants as well. She suggested a curve as opposed to this staggered model (see handouts.) She offered to return with further data to illustrate the proposal. Wohl Haan spoke, recommending the panelist addition even if limited to just two members. She cited the lessened chance of issues with recusals as well as the desire to engage diverse voices to unite the community. Chasansky clarified that the majority of commission members would not like to see an option whereby all funding be centralized to GOS grants. Agenda Item 6: Matters from Commissioners [2.55.30 Audio min.] A. McCormick spoke about the outcome of the City Council discussion around the Community Culture and Safety Tax continuation ballot item. Council approved this as a .3% sales tax. McCormick highlighted the language calling for 10% of the tax revenues over 20 years be directed to nonprofits vs. current 20%, essentially cutting this funding in half. McCormick and members of Create Boulder advocated to council for more and dedicated funding to arts and culture. They did get “culture” back in the ballot measure’s title, but council majority did not decide to set any additional monies aside to this effort. McCormick also spoke about the concept plans for a cultural arts center located near the north wing of the Main Library, perhaps redeveloping the senior center. Business and arts leaders are backing this long-term project and forming a public private partnership to lay out the planning work and seek further funding. She can send further information to any interested commissioners. 5 APPROVED BY: ATTESTED: _________________________________________ ________________________________________ Board Chair Board Secretary _________________________________________ ________________________________________ Date Date Agenda Item 7: Matters from Staff [3.03.40 Audio min.] A. Manager’s Memo: See packet. Chasansky welcomed questions. B. Budget Update: Farnan and Chasansky (see handouts.) – Chasansky discussed 2021 budget restorations and American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds available for this year. One detail of the special adjustment to base amounts to $157,250 under grants restoration. Staff recommended awarding project grants that scored above the minimum threshold, but for which there was not enough funding to approve. After confirming eligibility, provide those grants in order: Community Projects for Individuals, then Arts Education, then Community Projects for Organizations in the order of highest scores. Lastly, add a round of Rental Assistance Grants with criteria changes pertinent to the pandemic. Chasansky next spoke about expansion in 2022 over and above the budget restoration thanks to ARPA funding (reestablishing the Experiments in Public Art Program or providing an enhancement scholarship for GOS grants). Can ARPA funding be used to complete a project (e.g., the University Hill) which is currently on hold? ARPA law encompasses very targeted criteria around what the monies can be put toward, but Chasansky will inquire and report back. McCormick also wondered whether a portion of ARPA funding can go to permanent neighborhood art. As this is more of an infrastructure element, staff felt that may be challenging to present as a response to community need. With this proposed $275,000, Vink would only anticipate 3-4 permanent neighborhood-scale projects could happen. Farnan: we are also under time constraints on ARPA funds and public art projects consume a lot of time as well as staff focus. Cole moved that commission support the staff recommendation for use of the budget restorations in the Grants Program to fund the top scoring organizations and individuals in the 2021 Community Project Grants for Individuals, Arts Education Grants and Community Project Grants for Organizations categories after they have been deemed eligible by Office staff and, that the balance of the funds be used for an additional round of Rental Assistance Grants with a change to the criteria that online expenses be an allowable use of the funds. Kert seconded, and the motion was unanimously approved. Hughes recused himself as he is employed by an organization that benefits from the funding. Agenda Item 8: Adjournment [3.38.40 Audio min.] There being no further business to come before the commission at this time, the meeting was adjourned. Date, time, and location of next meeting: The next Boulder Arts Commission meeting will be at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, October 20, 2021, on Zoom. 6 TO: Members of the Boulder Arts Commission FROM: Matt Chasansky, City of Boulder Office of Arts + Culture DATE: October 15, 2021 SUBJECT: Manager’s Update for the Boulder Arts Commission Retreat on October 20, 2021 1.

We’ll be reviewing and discussing tips on 1) communicating unspoken rules, 2) reaffirming expectations, and 3) sharing preferences. To prepare, Eboni suggests watching the following video: “3 steps to turn everyday get-togethers into transformative gatherings by Priya Parker” > 9A, Fire Station 3 Public Art Project Finalist Approval – In Attachment One please find a preview of the presentation that will be given by staff for finalist selection of the Fire Station 3 Public Art Project. The role of the Arts Commission at this step in the public art process is to approve that the selection process has met the criteria of the Public Art Policy. Staff will ask commission members for a motion to recommend that the City Manager approves the project and enters into a contract with the finalist. Other options include: a) Approve a motion to not recommend this finalist, or b) Postpone the motion and ask staff and the selection panel for answers to specific questions. > 9B, Public Art Implementation Plan Final Draft – Following discussion at the August and September meetings, staff has prepared a final draft of updates to the Public Art Implementation Plan to guide commissioning and maintenance for the conclusion of this two-year cycle. This final draft was previously sent to Commission members and is also included in Attachment Two. During the meeting, staff will ask commissioners for a motion approving the update. The Commission also has the option to not make a motion and ask staff for answers to specific questions or further changes. > 10A, Program Change Request: Block 1750 – In Attachment Three, please find the further clarification from Block 1750 responding to questions from the Commission about their Community Project Grant 2021 changes. > 10C, Final Versions of 2022 Grant Cycle Documents – To complete the decisions for the 2022 grant cycle, staff will ask the Commission to give nodding approval to the final draft documents for the application, scoring, and 7 decision processes. The drafts have been sent directly to commissioners and are found below in Attachment Four. The Commission’s recommended changes have been integrated, including: ­ Contractual age. All applicants must be of legal contractual age as defined by the State of Colorado (18 years). To this criterion, the following statement has been added: “We encourage those younger than 18 years of age to engage with a fellow artist or organization in order to apply. Contact the Office with questions.” ­ The General Operating Support (GOS) application will request submission of 2019 and 2020 financials. The higher budget number will be used to determine their status. ­ The GOS report has been shorted to request only one page of content plus attachments. ­ A fund for grant writing assistance has been added to the grant program documents. ­ The uses of Venue and Online Event Affordability Fund (formerly Rental Assistance Grants) has been expanded to include the purchase of Personal Protective Equipment and/or COVID 19 testing, and/or equipment for hosting online programming, such as video software, cameras, or tech support. ­ The character limit for the Community Priorities Questions on the Community Project and Arts Education applications has been changed to 1,800. ­ Bulleted information is encouraged on all text sections in the applications. ­ A note has been added to applications that language translation for the materials is available. ­ A requirement has been added that a justification for recusals from scoring must be sent to staff for our records. In addition to these recommended changes, staff will present two alternatives for the structure of the GOS category: Option One: Four Tiers. Applicants are sorted into four categories based on budget size. The size of the grants in each category is a set amount. The number of grants offered is adjusted to make sure that each category is similarly competitive. In other words, that each applicant has a similar chance for receiving a grant regardless of their budget size. This is the system used in the current grant cycle. Option Two: Budget Indexing Percentage. After applications are approved, the total budget for GOS grants ($758k) is divided by the total of all budgets of successful applicants to establish an indexing percentage. That is then applied to each organization’s budget to determine the amount of their grant. For instance, based on the current cycle, 47 organizations would receive grants in amount of 3.18% of their budget. Examples of how each option might be structured can be found on page 124 of this packet. During the meeting, staff will ask which of these two options are preferred. If option two is preferred, staff will ask the commission to discuss two further questions. First, should all applications over the scoring threshold be recommended for approval? Or, should there be a limitations in place to address the number of grants and size of awards? Second, should rules be put in place to cap the lowest and highest grants in order to ensure that no individual grant is greatly outsized, or too small to be effective? Staff will ask for nodding approval to endorse the documents for the 2022 grants cycle. The commission also has the option to: a) endorse the documents with certain specific changes, or b) decline to endorse the documents. 8 > 10D, Delegation for Administrative Decisions – During the meeting, staff will ask the commission members for a motion to approve administrative decisions on certain grant categories in the 2022 cycle: Rental Assistance Fund, Field Trip Fund, and Professional Development Scholarships. 3. Commission Correspondence In Attachment Five, please find copies of email correspondence received by the Boulder Arts Commission during the period between the publication of the September and October 2021 meeting packets. 4.

Work continues on the budget process including the proposed 2022 division budget, a proposed increase to the 2021 budget, and special allocation from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA).

This is an advance look at the grant documents for the next meeting to make sure you have as much time as possible to review them and think through the issues. Please review the documents in advance of the Boulder Arts Commission meeting on Wednesday, September 15 at 6pm. To access the folder of documents go to the online portal, then to your Shared Documents folder, then to the appropriate folder. The documents are also attached. 132 Documents for review: Follow up responses: 2020 Arts Education Grant, Colorado Conservatory for the Jazz Arts, SheBop Weekend Workshop, $3,000 Report: 2020 Community Project Grant for Individuals, Angie Eng, Earth Wear, $5,000 Change in Program Request: Original application for the 2021 Community Project Grant for Organizations, Block 1750, Block Party, $10,000 Update proposal letter Regarding the change in program request, it is important to give you background on this process. When a grant recipient notifies staff about a change in the nature of an already-awarded grant, staff reviews the request to ensure the project still meets eligibility requirements of the grant category and continues to meet the nature of the application that was approved by the Arts Commission. In cases where staff determines that the project is substantively different than what was described in the approved application, the decision goes to the Arts Commission for discussion and vote. In this case the grantee, Block 1750 was awarded funds for their program Block Party in 2021 and is unable to complete the event, so they are proposing that the grant funds be dedicated to a different program. The new, proposed program, Movement Zoo, is eligible for funding according to the Community Project Grant eligibility requirements, but substantively different from the project described in the application. The Commission will be asked to determine if Movement Zoo is still a good use of the funding. You’ll not be asked to give scores at the meeting, however you are highly encouraged to review the Scoring System and Rubric to help determine if the proposed program is a reasonable replacement for the awarded program. At the meeting you’ll discuss and determine if this Movement Zoo warrants funding. At the meeting you will vote on the report and the change in program request. For the report, Commissioners have the options to: Approve the grant report, Not approve the grant report and cancel the final 20% payment, and/or Postpone approval of the report pending the answers to specific questions. For the change in program request, Commissioners have the options to: Approve the change in program request, Not approve the change in program request and request return of the funds already received by Block 1750; Postpone approval of the change in program request pending the answers to specific questions. Interim Executive Director Leah Woods and Creative Consultant Alex Milewski will be on hand to answer any questions. Of course, feel free to email or call me if you have questions. My cell is 660-553-7289.

External Sender Dear Boulder Arts Commission, The Boulder Arts Commission was kind enough to award me a professional development grant recently, and I wanted to let you know how much it meant to me, and also to invite you to my upcoming reading on October 21 at the Boulder Book Store. My story collection MIXED COMPANY won the George Garrett Fiction Prize, and is being published this fall by Texas Review Press. MIXED COMPANY is a collection of funny stories set mostly in Colorado, about people trying to reach across chasms caused by differences in race, culture, native language, disability, age, gender, and political beliefs and form some kind of connection—love, friendship, or at least respect. These efforts often go awry--as in the story "Local Honey," when two white, aging hippie adoptive parents from Boulder try to bond with their Black teenage son by bringing him to a Wu-Tang Clan concert--but all the stories show people trying to reach out from the 138 limitations of their own experiences and make an effort to understand someone different than them. I grew up in Denver during its era of court-ordered crosstown busing for racial integration, which immersed me in a variety of different cultures, languages, and neighborhoods, and influenced the topics I write about. The Boulder Arts Commission awarded me a $500 grant, which I used to participate in the "Author Speed Dating" event at the Mountains & Plains Independent Booksellers Association's fall conference last week. It worked like this: booksellers from throughout our region sat at 14 different tables, and then authors went around visiting each table. We had four minutes at each table to meet everyone and tell them about our books. It sounds crazy, but it was such a wonderful experience! My book is published by a small press, and so it's hard to get the word out about it. This allowed me to connect with buyers from independent bookstores in our region--the very people who would be most interested in a short story collection set in Colorado. It was great to meet everyone from the Boulder Book Store, Maria's Bookstore in Durango, Macdonald Bookshop in Estes Park, Off the Beaten Path in Steamboat, and many more. Representatives from all the wonderful bookstores I visit on my Colorado travels were there. I think that several of them were interested in stocking my book and letting their patrons know about it. I am very grateful to the Boulder Arts Commission for giving me this opportunity, because usually only major press authors can afford to participate in the conference. Thank you for all the good, hard work you do, and thank you for supporting independent artists in Boulder through this grant program. Here are a couple of readings I have coming up--I would love to see any of you there, or just around town someday! Thursday, October 21: Boulder Book Launch: Boulder Book Store (1107 Pearl St., Boulder, CO), 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $5, good for $5 toward a purchase in the store: https://www.boulderbookstore.net/event/jenny-shank-mixed-company Saturday, October 30: Lighthouse Happy Hour Reading: Lighthouse Writers Workshop (York Street Yards, 3845 Steele St, Denver, CO), 5 p.m. I will be baking some treats for everyone who attends in person.
