Update: Tiffin City Council approved the Municipal Arts Commission during their meeting Monday evening.

Tiffin, Ohio — Tiffin Mayor Aaron Montz announced Monday that his office is now accepting applications to serve on the Tiffin Municipal Arts Commission if it is approved by city council.

In July, the Montz administration requested creation of the Municipal Arts Commission to “promote public art to enhance, enliven, and enrich the lives of Tiffinites and visitors while reflecting our community values.”

“The Tiffin Municipal Arts Commission will support and encourage both local and regional artist’s public exhibition opportunities, encourage public participation and interaction, and strive to reflect the rich, diverse cultural fabric of our region,” Montz said in a post to his official Facebook page. “The TMAC will recognize that public art adds value by providing educational opportunities, economic sustainability, and an improved quality of life in and around Tiffin.”

Tiffin City Council will vote on Ordinance 21-78, which would create the Municipal Arts Commission, during Monday evening’s meeting.

Montz said he will be seeking up to seven members to serve on the commission as inaugural members.

“Members serve in a voluntary role and must certainly have a creative side and/or a passion for the arts,” Montz said.

Those interested in serving as an inaugural member of the commission should email Montz directly at mayor@tiffinohio.gov on or before Friday, October 29.

“Please include a brief bio along with your background and why you wish to serve in the TMAC,” the mayor said. “Together we can continue to move Tiffin forward while showcasing the tremendous talent of our local artists.”
