About the C-Street Art Collection Plan

In August of 2021, City Council approved a $40,000 Tax Increment Financing (TIF) allocation for new artwork for the Commercial Street Historic District. The City of Springfield, in partnership with stakeholders and subject matter experts, will develop an Art Collection Plan for the district, which already benefits from a variety of art curated over the years.

The purpose of the plan is to guide new art acquisitions, rotating pieces and exhibits and deaccessions. The current C-Street collection will be included in the plan. The plan will summarize how to develop and refine the existing collection, identify gaps and major areas of focus (priorities for acquisitions) acting as overarching guidelines for art in the public realm of C-Street. Once a plan is drafted, there will be several widely publicized opportunities for the general public to provide input via various means beginning this fall.
