The food trucks popping up around central Ohio could make an appearance at the Dublin Art Council's summer concert series.

During a DAC update to Dublin City Council members, John Reiner suggested bringing in food trucks to feed the crowds that come to the weekly free concerts that run from June 10 to July 29 at Scioto Park.

With crowds that already bring their own food to the concert, Reiner said food trucks could feed guests and raise a little money for the DAC.

"We could invite food trucks and take a portion of the proceeds for the DAC," he said.

Legal counsel Jennifer Readler said the city is already looking into city code regarding whether food trucks are allowed in the city and at events.

"That's undergoing review right now," she said.

Reiner also recommended selling wine at the summer concert series, with proceeds also benefiting the DAC.

"It would be a major change to regulations, but another way to raise money for the DAC," he said.

Alcohol is currently not allowed at the event and DAC executive director David Guion said an announcement is made at the concert regarding that law.

"I have noticed consumption at these concerts because it's acceptable at other locations. It's worthy of discussion," Mayor Tim Lecklider said of the idea.

"If it's not going to be allowed there should be enforcement."

Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams will return to the summer concert series this summer, Guion said.

Council said the ideas will be discussed.

In other DAC news, Guion also updates council members on two upcoming public artworks.

The DAC recommended using Westerville artist Mike Tizzano for the town pump sculpture that is planned for BriHi Square.

The sculpture would include an adult, two children and the town water pump that used to sit in the middle of the Bridge and High street intersection.

According to a staff report to council, Tizzano would like to use Dublin youth as models for the sculpture and complete a "significant amount of the sculpting in a public location to allow community members to observe and engage in the sculpting process.

"Mr. Tizzano is a retired central Ohio middle school art teacher and is uniquely qualified to teach sculpting principals to the community through this commission."

Research has also progressed on the public artwork proposed for the Emerald Parkway bridge over Interstate 270.

Dublin staff has been working with LAND Studio, a Cleveland-based studio that has helped the city with their public art program.

"There are several technical issues that need to be addressed early in the project," the staff report to council said.

Guion said the DAC needs $25,000 to administer the call for artists for the project.

The money would fund artist visits to the site, juror fees and other administrative costs.
