PORT ST. LUCIE—
It was nerve-wracking enough for Linda Relis to watch her son, Air Force Col. Ronald J. Garan Jr., lift off from Cape Canaveral on the Space Shuttle Discovery in June 2008 for a mission to the International Space Station.
Imagine what will be going through the Port St. Lucie mom's mind as she watches her son lift off on his next mission to the space station, this time from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in the former Soviet republic of Kazakhstan aboard a Russian Soyuz TMA 21 spacecraft.Posted on March 31, 2011 | Permalink
In 1999, the Cultural Affairs Council spearheaded the effort to have Art in Public Places Ordinance 99-07 passed by St. Lucie County's Board of County Commissioners. This program, modeled on earlier State and Federal public arts programs, is funded by taking a small percentage of the dollars that are invested by the County for capital improvement projects and placing them in a fund designated to be utilized for the purchase of public art. An advisory Art in Public Places Committee makes suggestions to the Board of County Commissioners as to appropriate locations for public art and nominates artists that are qualified to execute these art commissions.
