July 14,1992
TO: Annette Kuln, Assistant to the [...]
FROM: Nonan Steal, Commissioner
SUBJECT: Works of Art in public buildings
     I have made my design staff aware of the the City policy concerning the inclusion of artwork in our capital construction projects are outlined in the legislation introduced by the Mayor. This Department is wholly committed to the incorporation of artwork into our facilities. 
    The Department of Sanitation will work closely with the Art Commission by incorporating their recommendations into the design of our new facilities. In addition, the Department's Artist in Residence, Meirle Laderman Ukeles, has compiled a list of one hundred relevant artists whose work is concerned with public, environmental, social or discarded materials art interests. These artists could be submitted as candidates for consideration for artwork proposals at planned DOS facilities.
