A Commitment to Cultural, Aesthetic and Economic Vitality
The City of McKinney promotes the cultural, aesthetic and economic vitality of the city by integrating art into public places, civic infrastructure and present and future development.
McKinney's Public Art Program builds our community's identity by initiating artworks and exhibitions that enhance the vitality of our community. Artworks can also add value to new development by lending a special sense of identity, creating memorable public places and conveying a sense of civic purpose.
The City of McKinney is accepting donations for the City of McKinney Public Art Fund. These donations will be used to build a butterfly sculpture bench in honor of Jeffrey Hull.
Jeff was a husband, father, grandfather, artist, poet, avid bug collector, and he supported the arts and historic preservation. As an active volunteer, he gave his time to the City of McKinney Library Board, the McKinney Arts Commission, the McKinney Monarch Initiative and the Pecan Grove Cemetery. Jeff was a 4th degree Knight of Columbus and active in his church - St. Michael Catholic Church St. Vincent de Paul. Jeff passed away on September 11, 2018.
You are making a contribution to the City of McKinney Public Art Fund. The City will do all they can to honor your wishes to fund a specific project but if the project does not receive enough donations, your contribution will go into the City of McKinney Public Art fund and will support future Public Arts projects. Also, if donations are received above the goal for a specific project, any additional funds will go into the City of McKinney Public Art Fund to offset the cost of future Public Arts projects.
Thank you for your support of this project and the Arts in McKinney!
