The Davidson Public Art Commission (DPAC) was formed in August 2008 when the board of commissioners voted to create a body devoted to advancing public art goals for the town. The duties and responsibilities of the commission are:
Identify possible public art projects and sites
Select artists for specific sites
Solicit grants and outside support for the program
Encourage private developers to include public art in their developments
Support opportunities for public discussion of public art
1) "Bouquet for Davidson" by Andrew Dunhill
2) The Book Garden by Landscape Designer J.Nell Bryson and Artist Lydia Musco.
3) "Dance of Life" by Douwe Blumberg.
These projects are made possible through grants from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Arts and Science Council, private and corporate donations and town funds derived from the prepared food and occupancy tax.
