The Maple Ridge Public Art Steering Committee welcomes donations and gifts of public art (non-cash items and artwork) from private individuals or groups as per the public art policy adopted in 2011. There is a process and guidelines for the acceptance of donations and gifts of public art into the civic public art collection. These guidelines will help ensure high quality work is added to Maple Ridge’s public spaces. Included in the guidelines are procedures for accepting or rejecting proposed donations of art and honorary gifts marking significant events/person in a manner fair to the donor and the public. Each donation will be assessed on a case by case basis as each will be unique.
