With plans in the works for a citywide cultural event, named SPLASH, the Malibu Cultural Arts Commission is seeking public input.
The meeting is set for 6:30 p.m. Oct. 16 at Malibu City Hall and will lay out preliminary plans for a city-wide cultural event, tentatively named SPLASH.
All artists, art institutions, businesses, patrons and other interested parties are encouraged to attend.
The Cultural Arts Commission was established by the Malibu City Council in 2012 to make recommendations to the City Council on matters related to cultural arts issues.
The meeting will begin with a brief presentation by the Cultural Arts Commission chairman on the background of the concept, initial ideas for structure and organization of the event and public input.
“The Cultural Arts Commission would like hear from as broad an array of citizens as possible about this idea,” said chair Daniel Stern. “We began talking about an event to showcase the world-class artists living and working in Malibu during the Arts Task Force deliberations in 2012 and are excited to be at a stage where we can invite more participation from our arts community and all citizens of Malibu,” he continued.
Members of the Cultural Arts Commission are Chair Daniel Stern, Richard Gibbs, Scott Hosfeld, Eric Myer, Suzanne Zimmer, and Graeme Clifford (Ex-Officio Member).
