DeLand commission approves ordinance making Public Mural Art Committee

DELAND — In the city’s historic downtown, a mural is never far from view.

There are more than a dozen large-scale pieces as well as several smaller installations throughout the award-winning corridor.

Most of the larger works reflect scenes of old Florida or moments or key figures in the city’s history.

And while the existing pieces haven’t raised eyebrows, or stinks, it’s an issue the city could face in the future without a codified policy in place.

City attorney Darren Elkind, who brought the proposed ordinance to the City Commission, said the murals, regardless of how they’re funded, are not private works.

“It’s going on private buildings with the agreement of the building owner, but it’s part of the public art program,” Elkind said. “And the public, which can only operate through its public bodies, is deciding what in its community it wants.”
